Côte de Nuits-Villages, 2017

Story

The wine
At the gates of the Côte de Nuits, this little appellation, often overlooked, gives pride of place to the finesse and elegance characteristic of its illustrious neighbors. We craft our Cuvée with the greatest care, and with the desire to reveal the right expression of the local typicity, while respecting the identity and influence of the vintage. The grapes come from the villages of Fixin, Brochon, Premeaux, Comblanchien and / or Corgoloin.
The vintage
The 2017 vintage offers great wines very aromatic, marked by intense floral and fruity scents. They are frank and very fresh and their texture, underlined by fine and tender tannins, is very elegant. Of good length, they offer on their youth a very beautiful balance and will know how to age harmoniously.
Maturing
12 to 18 months in French oak barrels of various capacities, ages and origins in order to smooth the impact of the wood as much as possible and allow a fair expression of the nuances of the appellation. No racking during aging and re-massing for 2 to 3 months before to clarify the wines as naturally as possible.
