harvest note

2016 began with frost, resulting in smaller crops, but the smaller crop allowed for ripening well into September due to cool, dry, and sunny weather. While yields were low, excellent white wines were produced. The 2016 vintage is unfolding to be an amazing one.

tasting note

A powerful, tannic and full-bodied wine of intense color, Nuits-Saint-Georges offers robust fruit flavors and nuances of oak in the bouquet.

food pairing

Pairs well with game, beef and pork, and medium-aged cheeses.
