Domaine Jean Chauvenet Nuits-Saint-GeorgesRegular price $61.99
'This is distinctly earthy with plenty of humus and forest floor characters infusing the notably ripe liqueur-like black pinot fruit aromas. There is excellent concentration to the sleek and sappy medium-bodied flavors that are quite serious, all while retaining impeccable balance on the lingering finish. This energetic effort is a fine Nuits villages and worth a look.' - Burghound - 91 Points
'The village appellation represents the bulk of the holdings of the domaine … more or less seven hectares of vineyards spread across several parcels principally located in the northern reaches of the village of Nuits Saint Georges on a combination of silt, sand and gravel soils which produce a classic version of the appellation. The average age of the vineyards that compose this cuvee is 45 years. A deeply colored wine with vivacity; somewhat stern in its youth but with excellent balance and black fruit flavors.
The wines of Nuits-Saint-Georges are not soft in their youth, but that is the true character of the terroir: robust tannins, dark fruit, and a mineral infusion from the iron-inflected soils that, taken together, can only come from this singular district. The estate’s holdings are farmed with the underlying objective of achieving certification as an organic grower in the coming years. Harvest is manual. Vinification is classic with 100% destemming and a brief period of cold maceration followed by two to three weeks of cuvaison, the length of which is determined by the appellation and the inherent structure of each wine. A decanting follows and then the wine is moved into small barrels where the malolactic occurs. An elevage of about 18 months occurs and the wines are bottled without fining or filtration.' - Importer's Notes
