Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée

Nuits-Saint-Georges Village "Les Plateaux" AOC

Character of the wine

Wines under the "Nuits" appellation are the most robust, full-bodied and strong in tannins of all Côtes-de-Nuits wines. They are usually ready to drink about 4 or 5 years after being bottled, and will age perfectly for about ten years. They are full and firm, with a deep intense colour.

Their aromas are rich and complex, suggestive of cherries, blackcurrants, animal pelts and truffles. Their high tannin content provides them with a very firm structure, and the harmonious interplay between the tannins and the inherently rounded nature of these wines makes them full-bodied and solid.
