Just like its “big brother”, the Gevrey Chambertin, this Côte de Nuits-Villages offers aromas of cherry and blackcurrant, often of licorice, and almost always aromas of wildlife, typical of its appellation and terroir.
The Pinot Noir is the only grape variety of the Côte de Nuits-Village appellation.
The Côte de Nuits-Villages appellation is situated in five village of the Côte de Nuits in Burgundy: Fixin, Brochon, Prémeaux-Prissey, Corgoloin, and Comblanchien. The vineyards are spread across approximately 200 hectares.
- Deep purple color.
- The nose is powerful and rich, with notes of wild blackberries, licorice, and fresh fig.
- Supple but well structured, it offers a little touch of vanilla on the finish after a rich array of red fruit aromas.
This wine is great with “œufs en moeurette” (poached eggs in wine sauce) with a Bourgogne Pinot Noir sauce, grilled lamb cutlets, donkey sausage, a spicy pizza, beef roast, poultry gizzards in salad or a good camembert cheese.
Serve at a temperature of 15 °C.
This wine can be enjoyed now, but can be kept for 3 to 5 years.
