Tasting notes

"Deep red colour. The aromas are powerful and elegant, with notes of cherry and blackberry, as well as hints of cedar wood evolving towards gamey touches. On the palate: beautiful balance between structure and softness. The long aftertaste is reminiscent of fruit syrups and mild spices". - Véronique Boss-Drouhin

Vinification and aging

maceration and vinification take 2 to 3 weeks indigenous yeastsmaceration and fermentation temperatures under total control. Joseph Drouhin seeks total control of the process of extraction; extraction gives colour and substance but should never be detrimental to the finesse and typical character of the wine. Type: in barrels (20% in new oak). Length: 14 to 18 months Origin of the wood: French oak forests. Weathering of the wood: Joseph Drouhin insists on total control of the weathering for a period of 3 years, one of the contributing elements to the elegance of the wine.

Terroir

Site: the appellation is elongated, with two different sections, north and south, separated by a little stream that crosses the town. The hillside is quite steep, but the vineyards have an excellent east exposure. Histoire & tradition: an emblematic wine, closely linked to the gastronomy of Burgundy. Soil: there are outcroppings of hard chalk in many places. The northern part of Nuits, close to Vosne, produces wines of great finesse. The southern part, with its rockier soil, gives powerful and long lasting wines.
