Vineyards situation

The Nuits-Saint-Georges A.C. wines are produced on land delimited by the parishes of 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.

Characteristics

The «Clos de Corvées» vineyards are situated in the heart of Prémeaux and cover 19 acres. Maison Louis Jadot controls nearly all of them.

Wine making

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 quintessential Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru « Clos des Corvées » of intense colour, robust, vigorous full-fruit and firm tannic structure. Extremely long on the finish, it shows nuances of bitter cherries and toasted oak in the aroma and aftertaste. It goes well with red wine sauces, marinated or roasted game, medium tasting cheeses.

Preservation

This wine will age easily for 12-15 years.
