91-93 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from vines planted in '76). Discreet oak influence does not interfere with the brooding, serious and ripe dark berry fruit and plum aromas. There is good body and flesh to the very firm and tight medium weight plus flavors where the tannins possess a high level of ripeness and hint of rusticity on the otherwise impressively long finish. This is not a refined effort but it is beautifully balanced and should make for a terrific bottle in 10 years. Drink: 2019+. (May 2011)"

92 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The 2009 Pernand 'aux Vergelesses' is also outstanding in 2009, as it offers up the depth of pure fruit of the top examples of the vintage and shows no signs of overripeness. The bouquet delivers a fine mélange of plums, black cherries, cocoa, stony soil tones and just a whisper of the gamebirds to come with further bottle age. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, broad-shouldered and quite elegant, with impressive mid-palate depth, lovely purity, ripe tannins and fine length and grip on the classy finish. This is quite 1999-like again, with perhaps suaver tannins. A lovely bottle in the making. 2016-2040. (Nov/Dec 2010)"
