2017 Maison Evenstad, Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru Les Didiers Pinot Noir
The Les Didiers vineyard is planted on a matrix of deep limestone soils and shares a border with the illustrious Les Saint-Georges vineyard. Les Didiers is known for its outstanding Pinot Noirs of elegance and complexity.
A stunning offering, the 2017 Maison Evenstad, Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru Les Didiers Pinot Noir opens with a strong impression of cherry, clove and plum skin. On the palate, a dusty and weighty texture interplays with intense and alluring darker, almost black, cherry fruit flavors. Delicate nuances of wildflower-stem overlaid with chamomile root entice. Abundant and powerful, the fruit intensity harmoniously integrates with the evolved tannins and elegant minerality, offering an unctuous mouthfeel. Vines ranging from 50-100 years old elicit outstanding characteristics of finesse and sophistication, making this wine a remarkably distinct offering.
