Wines and signs: BIVB matches appellations to Chinese Zodiac

The Tiger: Pernand-Vergelesses

People born in Year of the Tiger are known to be wild, brave, competitive, unpredictable and self-confident.

The Pernand-Vergelesses Village appellation from the Côte de Beaune with its forward white and red wines fit the assertive style of the Tiger.

The whites demonstrate linear tension in youth and develop mineral complexity with age, while the reds are fleshy and robust, making them fine and earlier-drinking alternatives to nearby Corton-Charlemagne grand cru which needs time to reach its finest expression.

Year of the Tiger:  1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010
