DOMAINE DENIS PERE & FILS

Pernand-Vergelesses, Burgundy 

Domaine Denis Pere & Fils is located in Pernand-Vergelesses, a picturesque village in Côte de Beaune and covers 31 acres of vines in Pernand-Vergelesses, Savigny-lès-Beaune, Aloxe-Corton and Chorey-lès-Beaune. In 1940, Raoul Denis, who was the winemaker of the prestigious Hospices de Beaune (as his father and grandfather had been) decided to take over a secondary job with his wife and to cultivate the 5 acres of vines he inherited from his family. In 1972, they created the company Denis Père & Fils with their first son, Roland and his wife, Annick.

In 1992, Roland handed the torch to Christophe, the youngest of his sons. Today, the domaine is run by Christophe and his wife Valérie.

The Vine Cultivation is traditional and balanced. Christophe Denis thinks this choice of methods is a good alternative between the “all chemical” and “organic” approaches. It is based on their experience and observation of the vines and the local conditions, allowing them to calculate accurately the optimum usage of organic fertilizers, to reduce to a minimum the application of synthetic products in the fight against pests (mildew, odium, grape-worm) and to best preserve the vineyard’s balance by the working of the soil (plowing or grassing).

The village of Pernand-Vergelesses is located in the Côte de Beaune region (Côte-d’Or). The appellation includes 8 Premiers Crus Climats.  The commune of Pernand-Vergelesses also produces 3 Grand Crus: Corton, Corton-Charlemagne and Charlemagne.   On the label, the appellation Pernand-Vergelesses and Pernand-Vergelesses Premier Cru may be followed by the name of the Climat of origin.

Pernand-Vergelesses produces both red and white wine with Pinot noir and Chardonnay as the main grape varieties.  Pernand-Vergelesses is tucked into the junction of two valleys among the hills of the Côte de Beaune. The nearby Hill of Corton stands guard over it and two other villages, Aloxe-Corton and Ladoix-Serrigny, harboring prestigious Grands Crus: Corton in red and Corton-Charlemagne in white. Pernand with its slopes and steep streets has the shape of a smily face. It has an important place in French cultural history: Jacques Copeau (1879-1949), a driving force behind the French theatrical renaissance of the 1920’s and promoter of a “decentralized” dramatic tradition, spent a large part of his life here and it was Pernand which saw the genesis of the “Copiaus”, a group of great actors whose works and whose spirit still lives on today.

Information by:  Burgundy Wines 

Most of the vineyards face East or South with a few facing North-East. Altitude ranges from 250 to 300 meters. On the lower slopes are clay-limestone soils mixed with “chaillots” (flinty residues from silcaceous limestones). These soils are easily worked and rich in potassium and phosphoric acid. Mid-slope, the pebbly limestone soils suit the Pinot Noir, and at the top, the brown or yellowish marly soil complements the Chardonnay.
