Wine Description:
With roots tracing back to 1795, the Rapet family in Pernand is a significant landholder in Corton-Charlemagne. Despite a rich history and outstanding wines, they remain relatively undiscovered. Under Vincent Rapet's guidance, vinification is traditional, employing whole-cluster pressing for whites and a mix of barrel and concrete egg fermentation. Reds undergo a short cold soak and around 15 days of maceration, maturing in carefully selected new wood. The flagship Corton-Charlemagne showcases their prowess, while wines like the old vine Pernand Sous Frétille offer insider gems. This domaine warrants more attention, particularly considering its reasonable prices. Read more

Taste Flavor
info

Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.
