2016 Maison Evenstad, Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru Les Vignerondes Pinot Noir 750ml
This exquisite Premier Cru shines with a shimmering black cherry color and aromatic intensity of black fruits, namely blackcurrant and blackberry. Structured with fine tannins, this charming and balanced wine hails from an intimate vineyard in the northern section of Nuits-Saint-Georges, near the legendary Vosne Romanée appellation.
Planted on an eastern-facing slope, the vineyard is rooted upon gravelly brown limestone with a fine layer fraction of loamy clay. Nestled at roughly 700 ft. of elevation, the upper section of the vineyard lies over pink Prémeaux limestone while the lower part lies over Bajocian Ostrea Acuminata marl.
Available exclusively through our French Memberships, this remarkable, little-known wine can be enjoyed in its early years or will benefit from cellaring.
