harvest note

2013 was a challenging season. It began with very wet and cold conditions in the region delaying flowering. This led to a disruption in quantity of the grapes, as millerandage affected the bunches. Summer ended with warm weather and fine growing conditions. Unfortunately, due to inconsistent ripening, the harvest was drawn out for an extended period of time. This was challenging for pickers as the weather turned cold quickly. For those that enjoy Burgundy reds, this is a still a vintage to enjoy as the wines produced have a lovely, silky texture.

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.
