Lovely deep ruby color. The nose develops gooseberry and graphite notes. On the palate, the wine is fruity and delightful withsilky tanins. Long-lasting and fruity finish. Our vineyard 'Aux Perdrix' is one of the most beautiful and qualitative Premier Cru of Nuits-Saint-Georges. The plot is owned at 99%: it's almost a monopole, we are the only producer of this famous terroir! Vines were planted between 1922 and 1955. Area : 3,4515 hectares (8,52 acres) Climate & Soil: South-east facing slope in south Nuits-Saint-Georges. Soil is composed buy limestone and clay with a clay predominance. To preserve their integrity, grapes are carefully harvested and sorted out by hand. We work with 100% full clusters. Before beginning the alcoholic fermentation we make a cold pre-fermentation during 4 to 6 days to work on the phelonic component's extraction. Then full maceration lasts for 15 days during which we'll use only pigeages (punching the cap). Intensity and numbers are lead to the concentration of tannins, perfumes and colour. Alcoholic fermentation is realized with natural yeasts. After maceration, free and press juices are separated for aging. Aging process is taking place 100% in traditional Burgundian 228 liters barrels during 15 months with around 40% of new barrels. ABV 13%
