This wonderful 8 ha domaine, based in the town of Nuits-Saint-Georges has been cultivated by the Chicotot family for seven generations. They have not used herbicides or pesticides for ten years and their vines, some of which are trained en gobelet, produce low yields. After a severe selection and traditional fermentation, the wines are aged for 18 months in barriques - only about 10% of which are new. During the maturation process, they tend to rack little to retain the natural carbon dioxide, rather than adding higher levels of sulphur dioxide.

Spice and red fruit and a little brushwood on the nose. On the palate, slightly rustic tannins, gutsy, earthy, approachable, fresh and direct. A powerful and charming Villages wine. This wine has very good depth and dimension with some tannins, which are by no means aggressive, and a lingering flavour of plump raspberry fruit enveloped in a fine silkiness. This is classic Nuits St. Georges packed full of vibrant fruit yet wrapped up in considerable structure. The length of the wine is very impressive. Drinking well now but can be kept.
