Nuits-Saint-Georges

Domain Wines / Nuits-Saint-Georges

In more than 20 years Jean-Luc and Paul, father and sons, established an estate divided over several flagship appellations from Burgundy. Each year some 20,000 bottles of vin du domaine are produced from the seven hectares of owned vines. This vineyard is pampered all year round with an average yield of only 35 hectolitres per hectare. After harvesting and carefully sorting the grapes, the grape juice is turned into wine with care and attention and then the wine is aged in oak barrels for a minimum of 12 months.

The result of this work of excellence is that today they are creating "Les Vins du Domaine" with a new, fashionable, modern look.

  • Terroir

    Appellation of the Côte de Nuits, Nuits-Saint-Georges Village or Village Premier Cru followed or not by the locality of origin produces mainly red wine.

  • Varietals

    100% Pinot Noir

  • Vinification

    After being hand-harvested, the grapes are put into stainless steel
    tanks for pre-fermentation maceration for 2 to 4 days. Then, alcoholic
    fermentation is begun using nothing but natural starters. Malolactic
    fermentation and ageing take place in oak barrels for 8 to 12 months.

  • Tasting notes

    Its purple robe, intense and sometimes moving towards mauve has
    a beautiful brilliance and offers a dense, sophisticated nose marked
    by aromas of blackcurrant and blueberry, enhanced by woody notes
    when young. Strong and vigorous, this full-bodied wine is chewy,
    balanced and structured. Long in the mouth, it is fully appreciated
    after a few years’ keeping: maturity gives it a sensual, sophisticated
    roundness.

  • Food pairing

    In addition to soft and washed rind cheeses, such as Epoisses, Langres
    or Soumaintrain, it is also ideal when partnered with flavoursome
    meats such as roast lamb, rib of beef, breast of duck or game.

  • Aeging and Service Temperature

    Serve at a temperature of 15° to 16°C. Delicious young, it has great
    potential for keeping for 10 to 15 years.
