2017 Domaine des Perdrix Nuits St. Georges 'Aux Perdrix’ 1er Cru Cote de Nuits
Winemaker Notes: Bright and intense deep ruby colour with purple tints. The nose is opening on fresh fruits notes : raspberries ; smooth spices as cinnamon and nutmeg. On the palate, lovely freshness, mineral and balanced. Red fruits are predominant.
We own 99% of this Premier Cru located on a limestony and clay soil with a clay predominance. They are 3.50 hectares (8.66 acres) 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.
Aging is 100 % made in oak barrels (40% new oak) during 15 months. Malolactic fermentation is 100 % realized.
Wine is bottled in Traditional Burgundy bottles.
The cork is marked with the estate's name and the vintage. Robert Vernizeau is the winemaker at Domaine des Perdrix for 16 years.
Jancis Robinson - 18/20 - "Cask sample. Rich black fruit with a tarry note on the nose that could fool you into thinking this was Nebbiolo rather than Pinot. Wonderfully fragrant palate with a vegetal note that leaves a lengthy and satisfying aftertaste, finishing with a final flourish of juniper-berry bitterness."
