Blessed with an excellent terroir and vines that date back to 1938, this premier cru from the domaine is one of the most consistent performers in Burgundy. 2011 has a gorgeous, elegant concentration. Firm and brooding it would be more revealing after a few years of aging. One of Burgundy's great overachievers.

"The malo for the 2011 Ile de Vergelesses was one of the last to finish in the cellar in this vintage and the wine was still showing just a touch of backend CO2 in barrel at the time of my visit, making it a bit grumpy for tasting. However, beyond the bit of youthful adolescence is a wine of a deep and vibrant character, offering up a complex nose of red and black cherries, venison, a very good base of stony minerality, coffee, woodsmoke and herbs. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and minerally, with a good core of fruit, ripe tannins and fine length and grip on the youthful finish. This will be good juice. 2016-2035+." 91-92/100 John Gilman, View From the Cellar
