Known for its long-keeping red wines, the village of Nuits-Saint- Georges gave its name to the Côte de Nuits.
The nose is clean and intense, with aromas of violets, black cherries, cassis and a hint of leather. The palate also reveals flavours of sweet spices like cinnamon. Nuits-Saint- Georges 2016 is a balanced and concentrated wine with silky tannins and a long and fruity finish. It is approachable now while able to age gracefully for several years.
Divided into two parts, between Prémeaux and Vosne-Romanée, the appellation of Nuits-Saint- Georges includes two very different types of soils. A unique combination, leading to a full-bodied and well-balanced pinot noir.
Once hand-harvested and hand-sorted on a vibrating table, our grapes are de-stemmed and placed into stainless steel fermentation vats by gravity flow, without pumping or crushing, to keep them whole for as long as possible. When the sugar contained in the fruits transforms into alcohol, the wine is extracted, and the remaining grapes are gently pressed in a pneumatic press. The aging process can then begin.
