IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

Tasting Notes

The PRIEURE red is reminiscent of a Nuits St georges with an intensely aromatic , ripe raspberry bouquet and concentrated palate.
Aurelien Verdet augments his range through grape contracts under which he lays down the criteria for the early part of the growing season with his suppliers . He then takes over the vineyard work in July and harvests and vinifies the grapes then bottles the wines . These grapes are tended organically but are not certified. Fruit is harvested manually and all the cuvees are vinified the same way. Vinifications are long - up to 30 days but his extraction is very gentle : up to 10 days cold maceration then gentle pumping over of the juice to stimulate fermentation After 15 days , the caps will be punched down more or less frequently depending on the vintage structure . The wines are aged in oak barrels from Burgundy , Troncais and Vosges forests not exceeding 1/3 new each year.

Technical notes
Planted 1970’s certified organic since 1971 4 hectares for red 0.3 hectares white South facing slope behind the charming village of Arcenant 5 miles west of Nuits St Georges Soils : limestone & clay with occasional rock bands 30 cm below the surface which ensures low yield and high quality .
Bottled. Lightish crimson. The aroma is unusual in combining an almost caramel sweetness with a herbal quality (some stems?). On the palate this is provocatively and deliciously fresh, with super-fine, almost imperceptible tannins. So drinkable even now.
