Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Saints-Georges
Côte de Nuits
Premier Cru
100% Pinot Noir

Nuits Saint-Georges is located to the North of Beaune in the Côte de Nuits area, just after Prémeaux Prissey and before Vosne Romanée. Both villages of Nuits Saint-Georges and Premeaux Prissey produce wines bearing the Nuits Saint-Georges appellation. "Le Saints- Georges"was the first climat to get the Premier Cru appellation.

The Premier Cru "Le Saints Georges" is situated on the commune of Nuits Saint-Georges, close to "Les Cailles", at the end of the village, going to the South. The vineyard is East oriented, the soil is chalky. It is more or less 30 years old.

This wine is fermented in open vats (destemed grapes) during 3 to 4 weeks. Then it is aged 18 months in French oak barrels.

This wine has a beautiful light ruby colour. Its tanins are tender. It is quite delicate, fruity with some spiced notes. It is a good companion for meat in red wine sauce but also grilled or roasted red meat. It also matches most cheese with medium taste.

This wine can be kept between 12 and 15 years, and in some vintages can be kept longer in good cellaring conditions.
