dégustation

Saint George Nights 2018 red

  • Complex

  • Powerful

  • Mineral

  • Fruity

  • Woody

 

With a sustained purplish red colour, this powerful and tannic wine but also refined is very representative of Nuits St Georges, one of the most beautiful red wine appellations of the Côte de Nuits in Burgundy.

Coming from the opulent and delicate 2018 vintage, it offers power, a remarkable balance and in addition to silky tannins thanks to the perfect mastery of the vinification of the Michel Noëllat estate, with ageing in new barrels (30%) for 12 to 13 months
Vineyard area 1.60 Ha, clay-limestone soil, average age of vines 50 years

This fresh and pleasant St Georges Nights will have in its youth notes of blackcurrant, cherries and peppers. As it ages it will bring a complexity worthy of the greatest red wines of Burgundy. Its aromas can evolve towards more spicy and then animal notes (leather, game).
The palate is very round, the tannin smooth and melted

Round and opulent, long on the palate, it is very representative of the wines of the appellation: structured and powerful, it can accompany a very wide range of dishes, grilled meats or in sauce (Côte de Boeuf / Duck Breast) but also game with hair.

Wine serving temperature: 15 to 16°

appellation

Nuits Saint Georges

Wine Characteristics

The appellation falls into two parts, divided by the town itself. The northern portion extends as far as the border of Vosne-Romanée, and the southern section lies partly in Nuits-Saint-Georges and partly in Premeaux.
Corresponding differences are observed in the wines. Their colour is an intense crepuscular crimson with a hint of mauve. The nose often features rose and liquorice. The young red wine has aromas of cherry, strawberry and blackcurrant, and when matured, leather, truffle, fur, game. Notes of macerated fruits (prune) complete the picture. Muscular and vigorous, chewy and full-bodied, its structure is both well built and well-balanced and it is long in the mouth. It is most fully enjoyed after several years’ laying down which rounds it out and underlines its sensuality and breeding.
The (rare) whites have a strong gold colour. They are firm and usually heady with a bouquet of brioche and sometimes honey, underpinned by white flowers.
 

Wine Steward’s Tip

Red: powerful and strongly-built, this is the wine that confers on the Côte de Nuits its noble reputation of a sturdy character. Its normal partners would be any meat that is at once full-flavoured and virile (roast lamb, rib steak, or breast of fattened duck), as the wine firmly coats and envelops its fibrous texture. Feathered game, similarly, responds to the charm of the wild and animal aromas which the wine develops with age. Sophisticated diners will also serve it with certain fish dishes such as carp in red-wine sauce. Cheeses: soft centred cheeses in the style of Époisses, Langres or Soumaintrain.
Serving temperature: 15 to 16°C.


White: this seldom met-with wine has the breeding and opulence required to partner with grilled sea-fish and grilled or cheese-topped crustaceans.
Serving temperature: 12 to 13°C.
 

Situation


Nuits-Saint-Georges is a likeable and lively town with a centuries-old history of winemaking. It gives its name to the Côte de Nuits, and its patron saint, Saint Georges, gives his name to their most famous wine. Its AOC, which dates from September 1936, includes the commune of Premeaux-Prissey in the appellation. Most of the wines grown here are Pinot Noir, but there are some plots planted with Chardonnay. The Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin, Bourgogne’s most famous wine-brotherhood, was founded here in 1934.

Terroirs


The soils in the northern sector derive from pebbly alluvium washed down from up-slope, or, in the low-lying parts, silty deposits from the river Meuzin. In the southern sector the alluvia at the base of the slope originate in the combe of Vallerots where there are deep marly-limestone soils, while at the top of the slope, the rock is almost at the surface. Exposures are mostly to the East or South-East.

Wine Estate

Domaine Michel Noëllat

Among the oldest winegrowing families of Vosne Romanée, the Domaine Michel Noëllat et fils feeds on a unique know-how associated with innovative ideas.

The Domaine Michel Noëllat in Vosne Romanée produces village appellations, Premier Cru and Grands Crus de Bourgogne from the Côte de Nuits.

The harvests and winemaking are very demanding: for the red wines, the grapes are harvested by hand, sorted, then conveyed to the vat room in small tanks to avoid crushing berries and early oxidation.

They are de-stemmed completely then put in open stainless steel tanks, the temperatures being controlled by thermo-regulation.

The red macerates at low temperature for 3 days then the fermentation takes place in the tanks for about 2 weeks.

Regular pumping over is done and the hat is pegged 4 to 5 times during the vinification period.

The wines are aged in French oak barrels from various sources.
The proportion of new oak is between 30% for the villages and 50% for the 1st Crus and Grands Crus.

The bottling is carried out after 15 to 18 months of aging in barrels.
