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.

Winemaking and Aging

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 (60% new oak) during 15 month. 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.

Tasting notes

Beautiful garnet colour with purple tints.
The nose is intense and powerful, deep and dense. It develops strong notes of riped fruits and chocolate hints.
On the palate, the wine is full and generous. We get some kirsch aromas, chocolate and spices while the structure is rich but integrated. Long aftertaste with a lovely harmony.

Food and wine pairings

The Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru "Aux Perdrix" 2011 will perfectly match with meats in sauce as beef bourguignon or coq au vin, red meat as prime cut of beef, leg of lamb, as well as strong cheese.
