Producer Tasting Notes

A wine that has a wonderful substance and fine-grained, elegant tannins revealing pure fruit. On the nose, the quality of the terroir comes through: beautifully defined, mineral-driven, hints, black fruit. Lovely focus. The palate is medium-bodied with fine but firm tannins, dark berry fruit laced with white pepper, merging into a finely structured and persistent finish.


Vineyard Notes

LOCATION: 2.05 hectares of vines planted in 1944. Located in the southern part of the appellation, Les Saint-Georges is considered to be one of the most ancient climats, having been planted with vines as far back as the year 1000. At the end of the 19th century, the town of Nuits was allowed to add the Saint-Georges appendage to its name; that of its most famous cru. TERROIR: The vines grow on deep and very pebbly brown limestone soil, resulting in rich and structured wines that are perfect for keeping.


Winemaking

Harvesting is manual with 40% of whole clusters. 3 weeks of fermentation with very light intervention.


Ageing

50% of new barrels are used for an aging period of 22 months.
