Jerome Chezeaux Nuits Saint Georges Les Vaucrains 2018
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Nuits|
A Domaine, which is based in Prémeaux-Prissey just south of Nuits-Saint-Georges, owns approximately 12 hectares of vineyards with Jerome, taking the reins back in 1993 after the death of his father Bernard, making wines that are wonderfully textured, detailed and elegant.
The Chezeaux domaine owns a bit more than a quarter-hectare in Les Vaucrain site which is elite and composed of a formidable mix of heavy clay and limestone.
It’s a light to medium bodied Pinot Noir that is magnificently crystalline with a light ruby color and a beautiful rose petal bouquet which leads to a satiny palate of black cherry, plum and strawberry fruits, sweet tannin, soft acidity along with faint oak notes, baking spices, stones, and anise. One that will provide enjoyment for many decades to come.
