Côte de Nuits

Nuits-Saint-Georges 2016

Pinot noir 75cl

Between Dijon and Beaune lies the village of Nuits-Saint-Georges, which gives it name to the Côte de Nuits, which extends over some twenty kilometers. Nuits-Saint-Georges produces mostly red wines. The appellation is also known for having been taken into space with the Apollo XV mission, which gave the name of the village to a lunar crater.

Dégustation : Our powerful and noble Nuits-Saint-Georges presents aromas of cherry, blackcurrant, violet supported by some notes of truffle and leather. The harmony between its tannins and its roundness balances this wine with peppery final notes and subtle woodiness.
Accord Mets & Vins : Cured meat, Oriental Spices, Stew, Red meat and game

Description

Between Dijon and Beaune lies the village of Nuits-Saint-Georges, which gives it name to the Côte de Nuits, which extends over some twenty kilometers. Nuits-Saint-Georges produces mostly red wines, its terroir is divided in two by the center of the village, in the northern part, the soils come from silt with pebbles descended from the Côte and from the alluvium of the Meuzin valley; in the southern part, the silt at the bottom comes from the combe Vallerots (deep earth, marl and limestone) while at the top of the hillside, the rock is outcropped. It is in this emblematic village, the most southern of the Côte de Nuits, that the Knights of the Wine-Tasters’ Cup founded their Fraternity in 1934, before settling, after the war, in the Château du Clos Vougeot. The appellation is also known for having been taken into space with the Apollo XV mission, which gave the name of the village to a lunar crater.

Vinification

Fermentation

The grapes are sorted, de-stemmed and then gently conveyed into the vat on a belt, without pumping. Before fermentation, we carry out a cold maceration at 10°C for 4 to 5 days. Vatting lasts between 18 and 20 days, during which we punch down the cap daily. The wine is then put into barrels, and the malolactic fermentation is carried out in full.
