Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : The area of production of the Nuits Saint Georges Premiers Crus is split up into two areas : North and South of the Commune of Nuits Saint Georges. This Premier Cru les Porets Saint Georges is located South of Nuits Saint Georges in the very heart of the Premiers Crus, where the structure of the soil is light and produces wines which are at the same time supple and generous. The plot selected is particularly well-situated with an East exposure.
The Vintage 2006 : The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. However, the sun appeared at the end of August and continued throughout September. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions. Careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and winery have produced beautiful wines with very pure aromas. Aged in French oak for 10 months.
Tasting : Dark ruby colour. Aromas of cherries, liquorice and pepper on a hint of chocolate. Beautiful vanilla note. Concentrated, well-crafted and opulent. Very pure aromas. The tannins are firm and elegant. Long and fresh finish.
Food pairing : It is perfectly matched with red meat grilled or en sauce and all cheeses, especially the local cheeses like Epoisses or Citeaux.
