RATINGS

90-92The Wine Advocate

...notes of cassis, dark berries and loamy soil, framed by a deft touch of new oak. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, tensile and precise, with chalky tannins and a mineral finish.

89-91Vinous / IWC

...fine lift on the elegant nose of raspberry, red currant and light rose petal aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, good cohesion and a rich, generous, sorbet-like finish.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits-Villages, Nuits-St.-Georges, Les Perrieres

Les Perrieres is a 6.25-acre Premier Cru vineyard in Nuits-Saints-Georges, in Burgundy’s Cote de Nuits. It is in the central part of of the appellation on its eastern edge. Because there are no Grand Cru vineyards in Nuits-Saints-Georges, the appellation’s considerable reputation rests on its excellent Premier Crus. The vineyard is steep and extremely rocky. Burgundy writer Clive Coates notes that Les Perrieres is “lighter, minerally, but elegant.”

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, 1er (Premier) Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
