Grapes: 100% Pinot Noir
Region: Burgundy, France
Vinification: Traditional: Small yield, selection of the grapes (pick out by hand). Controlled temperatures (cooling system) de-stemming, maturing on the lees.
Aging: Maturation in oak barrels for 15 months.
Tasting: With a bright cherry red color, its nose exudes aromas of spice blended with hints of liquorice and blond tobacco. It is full-bodied and persistent with notes of fur, spices and truffles. Nuits St. Georges wines have a high tannin content and are powerful, full-bodied and robust. This is perhaps the wine in which the Pinot Noir grape achieves the most perfect harmony between tannins and plumpness.
Food Pairing: Nuits-St-Georges is the perfect accompaniment for dishes cooked with red wine sauces, roasted and grilled red meats and medium tasting cheeses.
