Halfway between Dijon and Beaune, and with an easterly exposure, the vineyards of Nuits-Saint-Georges extend over 6 kilometres, with 140 hectares of Premier Cru vines. The range of soils, exposure and locations here creates a great diversity of terroirs. The area is bisected by the valley of the small Meuzin river, and the village itself.
The plot 'Les Perrières' is a locality where stone was once mined. A perrière is synonymous with a career.


Grape variety: pinot noir
Soils: very stony
Orientation: East-South-East.


Harvest date: 12 September 2015.
The grapes were handpicked. They were sorted a first time in the vineyard and again on the sorting table when they arrived at the winery.
At the winery: the grapes were completely destemmed but not crushed (they were left whole) and were gravity-fed into tanks. Maceration lasted a total of 25 days including one week of cold maceration (12°C). Fermentation used indigenous yeasts only (no additives such as enzymes or tannins were used). Infrequent punching of the cap (8 maximum).


Maturation: aged on the lees for 16 months with no racking using a proportion of 30% new French oak barrels.
Barrels: French oak barrels that had been toasted at low temperatures for a long time to impart a very delicate touch of oak to the wine.


Bottling: by using gravity in february 2017.


2015 – Excellence!
A memorable year which was nearly a disaster in terms of weather, but some late-season rain saved this small harvest. The fruit was magnificent, and produced some lovely juice. Ageing was handled very gently to preserve the aromatic qualities and lovely color of this very promising wine.
Ageing potential: 10 years and more.

Tasting notes

The brilliant color is a beautiful ruby ​​red. The nose exhales aromas of very ripe berry fruit embellished with spicy notes with some smoky nuances. On the palate, this gourmet and perfectly structured wine reveals a good length.
