Winemaking and Aging

Grapes are harvested in small cases, then sorted out and totally destemmed. The harvest is punched down during alcoholic fermentation, but not pumped over. Vatting during 15 to 20 days.
After a light settling of the juice, the wine is filled up in oak barrels for ageing during 12 to 18 months.

Tasting notes

The Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru Aux Perdrix 2004 has a wonderful deep and dark colour.
The nose develops Woody and peppery notes and evolves on red fruits aromas (raspberry). The mouth is rich, strenght and shows dried fruit aromas. This wine is long, pur and well-balanced.
The final has a pleasant freshness.
