100% Pinot Noir. Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru wines are those produced under the most-stringent conditions of the Nuits-Saint-Georges appellation, exclusively from grapes grown in officially classified Premier Cru vineyard sites. They have a generalized reputation as being well-structured and long-lived, and wines from several of the vineyards are considered to be of Grand Cru quality, the Les Saint-Georges vineyard being the most obvious example. Les Saint-Georges is the most highly-regarded of Nuits-Saint-Georges's 41 Premier Cru vineyards, and in the absence of any Grand Crus in the commune, makes the most highly sought after Nuits-Saint-Georges wine. The cool continental climate is tempered by warm sunshine for most of the day due to his aspect, and Les Saint-Georges' position low on the slope means that the cold temperatures are not exacerbated by too-high an elevation. Instead, grapes can develop flavor complexity in the warmed vineyard while still retaining acidity. This translates to balance in the finished wines. Please decant half an hour before pouring. Serving temperature: 15 to 16°C.
Its colour is an intense crepuscular crimson with a hint of mauve. The nose features rose and liquorice. This red wine has aromas leather, truffle, fur, game. Notes of macerated fruits (prune) complete the picture. Muscular and vigorous, chewy and full-bodied, its structure is both well built and well-balanced and it is long in the mouth. It is most fully enjoyed after several years of laying down which rounds it out and underlines its sensuality and breeding.
