Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Procès

2016

SOLD OUT.

This 0.63 hectare vineyard is situated in the middle of the slope. The soil here is made of clay and limestone, which ensures a certain minerality in the wine; the average age of the vines is about 40 years old.

The wine is fermented 50% whole-cluster. The wine is then gravity-fed into French oak barrels (20% new) for malolactic fermentation and aging.

"The 2016 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Procès 1er Cru feels broody on the nose with a hint of scorched earth tincturing the red fruit, complemented by sous-bois, marmalade and brown spices. The palate is marked by plenty of sappy red fruit, open and expressive with a dash of white pepper and cloves towards the long and tender finish. Superb!"

"Reduction flattens the underlying fruit today. Otherwise there is a really lovely mouthfeel to the relatively sleek and appealingly intense middle weight flavors that exude a subtle minerality while exhibiting solid length and very fine depth on the ever-so-mildly rustic finale."
