Nuits-Saint-Georges 2007

Grape Variety : Pinot Noir

Soil : Clay and limestone

Site : The area of production is located in the commune of Nuits Saint Georges, in the heart of the Côte de Nuits. The grapes are sourced from selected plots of vineyard South of the village, at the border of the "Premier Cru" area

The Vintage 2007 : The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a north wind, which aided concentration of flavours and gave rise to an exceptional phenolic maturity. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer. This results in red wines with a crunchy flesh and an explosion of red fruits marvelously combined with the minerality of the terroirs. Aged in French oak during 15 months

Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Very refreshing aromas of red berries mixed with chocolate and coffee. Subtle note of vanilla. Well-structured and dense. Elegant texture on a well-integrated oak. Well-defined tannins. Generous and refreshing aftertaste.

Food pairing : To be enjoyed with white or red meat, grilled or roasted, games and all sorts of cheeses especially all the cheeses produces in Burgundy (Epoisses, Langres, Citeaux, Ami du Chambertin
