Famed the world over, Nuits-Saint-Georges has the original character of a true wine village but the size of a small town. Halfway between Dijon and Beaune, and with an easterly exposure, the vineyards of Nuits-Saint-Georges spread over 6 kilometres, with 160ha of Village-appelation vines. The range of soils, exposure and locations here creates a great diversity of terroirs. The area is bisected by the valley of the Meuzin river, and the village itself.
The grapes were selected a ten meters or so from our winery, “Les Ursulines”, on the plot “Le Coteau des Bois”. This very deep plot is exposed full-east and adjacent to the Bois de Charmois.
The brilliant color is garnet red. The nose, all in freshness, exhales intense aromas of cherries, currants as well as some floral notes. The palate is powerful and generous with a very ‘salivating’ finish.
