Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru "Chaînes Carteaux"


Côte de Nuits


AOC Premier Cru

Grape variety

Pinot noir

Nuits-Saint-Georges gave its name to the Côte de Nuits and is almost exclusively devoted to the production of red Pinot Noir wines. The appellation stretches across 2 communes - Nuits-Saint-Georges and Prémeaux-Prissey. Differences in terms of exposure and soil profiles in the vineyards in the south and north of the appellation result in wines that are very diverse.
The "Chaînes Carteaux" Premier Cru vineyard, located at an altitude of 275 m, overlooks the "Les Saint-Georges" Premier Cru, the name of which was added to the name of the town of Nuits at the end of the 19th century.


The sophisticated nose combines scents of red and black fruit (raspberry, strawberry, blackcurrant...) with a delicate touch of oak, which will evolve over time toward more complex aromas (spices, forest undergrowth, leather...). Rich, dense and fleshy on the palate, this wine boasts structure that features bold, yet elegant tannins that lend it perfect balance.
