2018 Domaine des Perdrix Nuits St. Georges Cote de Nuits
WINEMAKING To preserve their integrity, grapes are carefully harvested and sorted out by hand. 20% of whole clusters were used. Before beginning the alcoholic fermentation we make a cold prefermentation during 4 to 6 days to work on the phelonic component’s exctraction. Then full maceration lasts for 15 days during which we’ll use only pigeages (punching the cap). Intensity and numbers are lead to the concentration of tannins, perfumes and colour. Alcoholic fermentation is realized with natural yeasts.
AGING After maceration, free and press wines are separated for aging. Aging process is taking place 100% in traditional Burgundian 228 liters barrels during 19 months with 30% of new barrels. We only use French oak coming mainly from Bourgogne, Allier and Vosges forests. The wine spends 2 months in tanks before bottling.
EYE Beautiful ruby colour with purple tints.
NOSE The nose is intense, rich and fruity (small red berries, raspberry, cassis) with a touch of spiciness (black pepper).
PALATE On the palate, the wine is ample and complex. Some fruity notes supported with precise tannins.
