Nuits St Georges, Domaine Jean Chauvenet, Côte de Nuits, Burgundy, France, 2019
100% Pinot Noir, average vine age 45 years, hand harvested, 18 months' ageing in oak (20% new), minimal intervention production heading towards organic certification. No clarification or filtration before bottling.
The entire Chauvenet domaine is only 9ha with many of the top premier cru sites producing superb wines. The village wine shows the quality of this domaine without such a hefty price tag!
Characterised by a dense and consistent colour. The freshness and intensity of this wine's fruity flavour are what inspire most. Over time, the fruit fragrances move towards macerated cherry, stone fruits and liquorice, composed of slight balsamic scents suggestive of resin.
"Destemmed. Cool pre-ferment maceration in concrete tanks. 15% new oak. Cask sample. Light to mid cherry red. Vibrant with juicy dark-red fruits and lightly spiced. Savoury on the palate. Gently chewy tannins. Balanced if not yet charming. (JH)"
16/20 points, Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com, December 2020
This wine pairs extremely well with roasts, game, meat dishes served in sauce and cheese platters.
