Nuits-Saint-Georges

An Appellation United by Division

Marking its terroir-tory as the southern most city of the Côte de Nuits, this friendly and fascinating city welcomes travelers to the top half of the Côte d'Or. Located between the legendary terroirs of Vosne-Romanée to the north and Prémeaux to the nouth, Nuits-Saints-Geroges aptly takes the best qualities of both: rich, deep and ethereal from the north and straight, structured and more austere from the south. At 2,000 hectares of pure Pinot Noir wine country, spread across 41 Premiers Crus climats, Nuits-Saints-Georges may be split in two parts, but its united by its overall world class quality.

Saintly Scents

When delicious crimson and mauve waves crash and fold in every glass, you'll want to make this Nuits-Saint-Georges 2014 last. Rose, licorice cherry, strawberry and blackcurrant are the first scents to set the scene. Leather, truffle, fur and game are on standby if left to age for a few years. Prune flavors will take flight for those who are truly patient. Vigorous, chewy and full-bodied on the palate and a long and intense finish will arrive to satisfy most of your needs. Be patient. Save it for a rainy day. The maturity will soften it. Nuits-Saint-Georges 2014 is perfectly suited for flavorful red meats – roast lamb, T-bone steak and duck magret will do – the fatty juices working in harmony with the wine's lip-smacking sweetness.

An Excellent Burgundy Vintage

This year’s vintage captured the memory of 2014’s unusual, and unpredictable, weather. An unusually mild winter – the Asian fruit fly had made its unwelcome introduction – something we would all wish to forget. At the beginning of the season there was much promise. The three months of Spring were warm and dry, culminating in an early bud break and bloom at the start of June. However, by the end of the month, cooler and wetter weather reigned supreme. On June 28th, a hailstorm – similar to the devastation that struck in 2012 and 2013 – damaged several villages across the Côte de Beaune, including Pommard. Third year in a row. Summer was defined by wetter-than-average weather and cool temperatures. A few hot days in July helped the vines recover their ground, but worsening conditions took control again during the first two weeks of August. By mid-August the weather improved, with mostly dry and sunny conditions aiding the grapes to a steady and juicy maturation. In September, the sun remained a constant element and a northerly wind bolstered ideal conditions; the grapes reached optimal maturity come mid-September with most appellations hand-picked under sunny skies.

When delicious crimson and mauve waves crash and fold in every glass, you'll want to make this Nuits-Saint-Georges 2013 last. Rose, licorice cherry, strawberry and blackcurrant are the first scents to set the scene. Leather, truffle, fur and game are on standby if laid down for more than three years. Prune flavors will take flight for those who are truly patient. Vigorous, chewy and full-bodied and complemented by a long and intense finish, your needs will most certainly be met. For this 2013, be patient. Save it for a rainy day. The maturity will soften it. Nuits-Saint-Georges 2013 is perfectly suited for flavorful red meats, think roast lamb, T-bone steak and duck magret – the fatty juices will work in harmony with the wine's lip-smacking sweetness.

Force of Nature

After the small yield, but succulent flavors, of the 2012 vintage, 2013 was another year that mother earth proved its hegemony over the vignerons and vignobles of Burgundy. The bud break was relatively late, seeping into June, following a cold, rainy and frigid Spring. Throughout June, a deluge of rain delayed floraison (flowering), introducing an increased risk of blight. Pommard, as well as surrounding appellations Volnay, Beaune and Savigny-lès-Beaune, also experienced a near-fatal hailstorm, identical to the thunderous power that struck in 2012. In July and August, the weather transformed again, this time for the better. Warm temperatures and sunshine clothed the vines – with some summer downpours relinquishing the heat – guiding the grapes to ripen delightfully at the end of September. Harvest began around September 23rd, with the vineyards bare of all ripe fruit come October 2nd. The year’s unstable conditions struck again with huge storms across the region’s vineyards on October 5th and 6th. Thankfully, just a few days too late to do any more damage to the net yield. Overall, this small vintage has incredible potential. We should all be thankful.

When delicious crimson and mauve waves crash and fold in every glass, you'll want to make this Nuits-Saint-Georges 2011 last.

Nuits-Saint-Georges 2011 is perfectly suited for flavorful red meats, think roast lamb, T-bone steak and duck magret – the fatty juices will work in harmony with the wine's lip-smacking sweetness.

An Excellent Burgundy Vintage

2011 first emerged from a dry and warm Spring, allowing sunny days and high temperatures in April, resulting in a slightly earlier bud break than anticipated. Warm temperatures continued throughout May, fostering an accelerated, but healthy, growth of the vines. Floraison and fruit set came together beautifully on May 20th – one month ahead of schedule – compared to previous years. Harvest was initiated on August 20th, when the grapes had ripened to perfection. Due to uneven and unpredictable weather conditions during the season, the results throughout the region were patchy in parts. But this is an outstanding 2011.
