Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru “Les Corvées Pagets”

Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru “Les Corvées Pagets” 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. Our vineyard is on the southern part of the hillside, astride the border between Nuits and Premeaux-Prissey, halfway between the climats of Saint-Georges and the Clos de la Maréchale, at an altitude of 787 feet.

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.

Black cherry and toasty vanilla aromas and flavors are the hallmarks of this muscular red. Hints of tobacco and chocolate linger. The firm structure begs for patience.
