Description

Nuits Saint Georges aux Saint Jacques 2018 Domaine Cruchandeau

Variety: 100% Pinot Noir

Wedged between the premier cru Aux Vigne Ronde to the west and the applause of Vosne Romanée to the north east, the Premier Cru Aux Saint Jacques enjoys a full east exposure at an altitude of 240 meters above sea level. The soil is mostly calcareous, with very little soil before the rocks.

The vineyard is really old, because the plants are from 1947.

After the harvest, carried out manually, the stalks are removed for a variable part depending on the vintage. It macerates on the skins at controlled temperature for 10 days, with repeated pumping over of the must on the cap of the marc.

Refine for a variable amount of months, from 14 to 18 in barriques: 33% new, 33% first pass, and 34% second pass.

Ruby red color with garnet shadows.

The nose is intense and very fine, with clean and extremely high quality perfumes. We have the forest, with leaves, moss, chestnut curls, then fruit with red currants. Spice evolutions with nutmeg and vanilla, and pipe tobacco.

Rich, voluminous and well-structured palate. The creaminess is remarkable for a wine with a long, deep and satisfying sip. Thick vineyard, and combined with the old vineyard produces a high quality burgundy, with significant propensities to improve over time. Aromas of vanilla, pomegranate and white currant emerge on the nose.

In the complex of the three aspects Julien Cruchandeau offers us an excellent Pinot Noir of Burgundy, a classic and identifying set of the territory.

It has the quality of a Premier Cru
