Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru “Clos de Thorey” Monopole

Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru “Clos de Thorey” Monopole bottle

Nuits-Saint-Georges lies on a bed of Comblanchien marble, on the hillside at the base of the Combe de la Serrée, in the sediment cone of the Hautes-Côtes.

The vineyards, solidly seated on middle Jurassic sedimentary formations, are cut in two by the town, where the Meuzin stream flows out of the Combe de la Serrée. To the north lies Vosne-Romanée, to the south, Premeaux-Prissey. Being exposed to a variety of directions, the characteristic tastes vary, with more rustic wines to the south of the village. Nuits wines are only at their best after several years, and are ideal for patient collectors.

Sweet sawdust and vanilla notes mingle with black cherry and blackberry flavors in this silky, polished red, whose tannins are soft and balanced with fine acidity, ending with a lingering finish of tomato leaf and oak spice. Best from 2025 through 2042. - Bruce Sanderson
