The Nuits-Saint-Georges wines are produced in two villages : Nuits-Saint-Georges and Premeaux-Prissey.
The soils are basically composed of limestone and marl. A perfect exposure to the East gives the capacity to produce splendid wines.
«Les Chaînes Carteaux» vineyard is on the Nuits Saint Georges commune, near "Les Vaucrains" and just over "Les Saint Georges". Facing East. The subsoil is not very deep, rather stony with limestone and chalk.
This wine is fermented in vats for 3-4 weeks and then aged 15 months in oak barrels before bottling.
Winemaker's comments / Gastronomy
Maison Louis Jadot produces a fruity and supple wine with elegant tannins . It develops red fruits aromas, such as blackberries, blueberries and earthy aromas when ageing.
Les Chaînes Carteaux is a good companion for game or meat in red wine sauces, as well as marinated or roasted poultry. It matches also very well not too strong cheese.
This wine will age easily for 12-15 years in good conditions of temperature and humidity, and even more in good vintages.
