Tasting Note:

The domaine have taken the 2019, the second incarnation of Bernagers, to another level. Broad shouldered and genuinely serious yet so smooth and classy with it. Perhaps less dark and gruff than the instense 2018, there is great purity of fruit on show here but not at the expense of backbone and structure. A wonderful array of fruit glides across the palate red cherry, sage, oregano and strawberry fruit sprinkled with fresh ground salt and pepper, rounded by a kirsch sweetness. Full, layered and generous but with great energy and a real sense of nobility. In 2018 The Domaine were extremely proud to welcome this iconic parcel, previously farmed by Jacques Puffeney (the "Pope of Arbois"), into the Domaine du Pélican fold. Jacques Puffeney created a Trousseau cuvée called "Les Bérangères" out of this parcel, which gained worldwide recognition amongst the Trousseau lovers. Domaine du Pélican were honoured that Jacques entrusted them with this holding. Montigny-les-Arsures, the small village where the winery and this Arbois Béranger parcel are located, is the capital of Trousseau, much in the same way as Pupillin is the capital of Poulsard. The soil is made of alluvium and silt over grey marls, stony enough to allow good drainage. This soil composition is particularly appropriate for Trousseau. The vines are over 50 years old. South and South West exposure and fairly low altitude (circa 300-330m) ensure perfect maturation. Elevage is in Burgundian and 350L barrels. No new oak is used.
