Hospices de Nuits Nuits St Georges 1er Cru ‘Rue de Chaux’ 2019
Deep color, with rich aromatics of red and black fruit, stone fruit, and notes of resin, undergrowth and delicate spice. Solid, chiseled structure that counterplays with elegance and is lightened by fine yet crunchy tannins. On the palate, notes of blackcurrant, cherry and licorice combined with undertones of resin and tar. A premier cru with excellent potential for bottle ageing.
The vineyard is situated close to the road leading to Chaux; a village in the canton of Nuits-Saint-Georges in the Hautes-Côtes. The soil is deep limestone and calcareous brown soils, reddish brown on silt and saliferous limestone gravel on a substrata of Bathonian fractured bedrock (Premeaux limestone and white oolites).
