Region: Nuits-St-Georges, Cote-d’Or, Burgundy
We own 99% of this Premier Cru located on a limestony and clay soil with a clay predominance. They are 3.50 hectares of vines in the South of Nuits-Saint-Georges on a smooth and south facing slope. One of the most beautiful and qualitative Premier Cru of the Appellation.Grapes are harvested by hand then sorted out and totally destemmed. Maceration is made and alcoholic fermentation lasts from 15 to 20 days in temperatures’ control vats, with punching of the cap. Maturation is 100 % made in oak barrels (40% new oak) over fifteen months. Malolactic fermentation is 100 % realized.
Bright and intense deep ruby colour with purple tints. The nose is expressive and powerful, opening on some red fruits aromas (strawberry) surrounded by a precise flintiness.
On the palate, the red fruits notes are predominant. The wine is full-bodied and rich with well-integrated tannins. Balanced and intense, to be cellared. The Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru ‘Aux Perdrix’ 2013 will perfectly match with meats in sauce such as beef bourguignon or coq au vin, red meat like prime cut of beef, leg of lamb, as well as strong cheeses such as Munster or Cîteaux.
