Nuits-Saint-Georges "Les Terrasses" - Monopole
Côte de Nuits
The Chateau Gris castle was built in the 18th century in the middle of its 3.5 ha (8.6 acre) walled vineyard. After the vines were destroyed by phylloxera, the roof of the castle was covered with grey slate whereas tiles are traditionally used in Burgundy. The people of Nuits-Saint-Georges therefore began to refer to it as Château Gris (“grey castle”) and the name stuck.
In Nuits-Saint-Georges, only 7.3 ha (18 acre) produce white wines, including 4.3 ha (10.6 acre) of Premier Crus. Our 0.67 ha (1.65 acre) vineyard is located on the high terraces of the hill, above the castle.
The nose develops aromas with predominant floral and mineral nuances along with a hint of toast. On the palate, this wine is very straightforward and round with a distinct mineral base, some nuances of liquorice, and an elegant, discrete woody flavour. Good overall length.
Ideal with fine fish, crustaceans, poultry in sauce and full-flavoured cheeses.
