Generous red berry and dark stone fruit flavors andaromas mark this robust, masculine Pinot Noir, and are offset by earth and spice notes in a vigorous, direct tannic structure.
The wines of Nuits-Saint-Georges are the sturdiest and longest-lived of the Côte de Nuits. They are less sumptuous and elegant than wines of the northern communes; closed and often inaccessible when young, they remain full-bodied and tannic well into middle age. Maison Louis Jadot vinifies the production of growers in the commune with whom it holds purchase agreements based on the quality of the harvest each year. The result is a classic Nuits-Saint-Georges that is deeply-colored and vigorous, with ripe, robust fruit flavors and nuances of toasted oak in the bouquet.
