Nuits-Saint-Georges Aux Saints-Juliens

Area in production at the estate: 47 ares 57 ca

Soils: Loamy soil and limestone pebbles

Location: Southwest, Northern part of Nuits-Saint-Georges

Altitude: 230m to 250m

The harvest is carried out exclusively by hand. They carry out a first sorting in the vineyard, then on arrival at the winery on a sorting table.

The harvest is 100% destemmed. A cold maceration is carried out during the first 3-4 days out of the 18 to 21 days of vinification.

Throughout this period, daily manual remontage (punching down) and pigeage (pumping over) are practiced.

Indigenous yeasts are used exclusively, and malolactic fermentation occurs in small oak barrels during the extended ageing of the wines.

They use 30% new barrels per appellation.  The wines are bottled without filtration between 18 to 24 months after harvest.

 

In their youth, the Saints-Juliens express vegetal nuances with wild fruitiness where both cherry and blackcurrant mingle. They become more refined over the years, evolving towards animal odours. The aromas are powerful and complex.
