Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru Les Saint-Georges rouge 2019

Nuits-Saint-Georges "Les Saint-Georges" 1er crus - 2019

  • PhilosophyOne of the main characteristics of Nuits-Saint-Georges’ wines lies in the great diversity of its terroirs, diversity that is found in the different styles of wines that vary greatly depending on where the grapes are grown. Based in Nuits-Saint-Georges, the House of Edouard Delaunay illustrates this multiplicity by offering several selections from Premier Cru climats located both north and south of the village.
  • TerroirThe wine of kings. Rare and reputed as the finest terroir in Nuits-SaintGeorges, “Les Saint-Georges” is one of Burgundy’s legendary climats and it is currently being considered for Grand Cru status. Located south of Nuits-Saint-Georges, at the bottom of the slope, the plot’s clayey brown soil strewn with pebbles lends depth and maturity to the wines along with ever-present minerality.
  • Vinification and ageingThe grapes were handpicked at their peak of ripeness and brought quickly to the winery in small crates where they were meticulously sorted before being destemmed. Once they were transferred to tanks, they began to ferment naturally under the influence of indigenous yeasts after a few days. Maceration lasted 3 weeks with few punch-downs and some pumpovers. After pressing, the young wine was barrel aged for 16 months (30% new oak) before being bottled.
  • Tasting notesGorgeous silky red in colour. The nose is delicate, airy and fresh yet robust, boasting aromas of citrus fruits (blood orange), herbs (dried grass, eucalyptus), spices (pepper, clove) and toasted bread. Smooth, round start to the palate, bursting with fruit (fresh grapes) and candy. Superb tannins will allow this wine to age well in the cellar. The finish features notes of currants, cherry bark and pine.
