Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru Les Perrières Rouge 2019

Nuits-Saint-Georges "Les Perrières" 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.
  • Terroir“Perrière” meant “quarry” in Old French. As its name would suggest, the soil in Les Perrières is lean and stony and the subsoil is composed of white marble that continues to be extracted today. The 45-year-old vines are managed in an ecologically responsible manner. This is a particularly early ripening plot due to the high proportion of limestone rocks that are warmed by the sun and transfer their heat to the soil.
  • Vinification and ageingTThe grapes were handpicked at the beginning of the harvest period – this is the first plot to be harvested in the Côte de Nuits. The careful sorting allowed us to select only the finest bunches of grapes, leaving 30% of them intact for this cuvée. Barrel ageing lasted 15 months (40% new oak).
  • Tasting notesSuperb, concentrated velvety black in colour. Magnificent ripe nose reminiscent of black cherry, flowers (carnation, tulip, heather), chocolate coated cherries, spices (cumin, turmeric, liquorice), rounded out by elegant oak notes and a hint of salinity. Powerful on the palate, featuring pleasing acidity that is characteristic of the appellation, dense tannins and roasted notes, along with cocoa, white pepper and a touch of stone. A splendid, complex, powerful wine that boasts excellent cellaring potential.
