Pernand-Vergelesses is a wine appellation in the Burgundy region of France which includes 11 Premier Cru cimats. It lies very close to the famous Corton-Charlemagne appellation in between Savigny-les-Beaune and Pernand-Vergelesses.
The appellation was recognised in 1936 for the production of still white and still red wines. However there is a finer requirement int hsio appellation where some climats (named places) are controlled as far as the production of red or white wines. Thus in the Le Plantes des Champs et Combottes climat and the Les Quartiers climat, for example, only white wines are produced whereas in the En Caradeaux and Les Fichots climats on the other side of the village, both red and white wines are produced.
The white wines can be made from either Chardonnay or Pinot Blanc with small additions of Pinot Gris. The red wines are made from Pinot Noir with the optional addition of small quantities of the white grapes.
