Alvina Pernot, born and raised in Puligny-Montrachet, grew up helping her father and uncle at Domaine Paul Pernot throughout her childhood. Ambitious to establish her own label and make her own wine, Alvina Pernot’s established her own micro-négoce (yet effectively own Domaine) label in 2018. Initially working across both domaines, she now entirely focuses on her own enterprise with her husband, while maintaining and benefiting from ties with the family estate.
For any new domaine starting out, it is immensely difficult and competitive in the village of Puligny-Montrachet. However, Alvina is uniquely placed with access to enviable holdings as contracts run down and land is taken back under the family umbrella, as well as having the talent and drive to forge out her own label and reputation. In our opinion, Alvina already appears to be making the most of her talents, heritage and terroir, so the only way is up for this excellent producer. The wines are produced from fruit sourced from early ripening parcels and she prefers a slightly longer elevage to the family Domaine. While all the wines are excellent, the 1er Cru Folatières and the Caillerets appear to be particular stand-outs. We are delighted to be there at the start of the journey and hope you will join us in following her progression.
