Winemaker Notes

Adorned with a ruby red color with violet hues, this wine reveals on the nose notes of intense red fruits and violet. The palate is balanced and fresh. All is both elegant and structured and the tannins are present but silky. You will be surprised by the appearance crunchy of this wine that fully reveals the Pinot Noir.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 94
Wine Spectator
The overall harmony of fruit, silky texture and structure makes this red compelling. The vibrant acidity drives this to a long, mouthwatering aftertaste, expanding on the kaleidoscopic finish. Light-footed and resonant. Best from 2021 through 2036.
BH 92
This is also quite restrained with relatively cool aromas of red and dark berry liqueur, spice, earth and plenty of floral elements. There is really good richness to the succulent, even seductively textured flavors thanks mainly to the relatively fine grain of the tannins shaping the moderately firm, balanced and solidly persistent finale. This is really quite good and if the flavors can add depth with a few years of bottle age the wine should merit the upper end of my projected range.

THE MOVE: In 1991-1992, I began to explore the possibility of living abroad for a year or two while our children were young. We had become interested in wine and it had become our major avocation.

In May 1993, my family and I moved to Burgundy, France to take a year off to work with and help manage a small wine export company based in Beaune, France. Our goal was simply to take a year's sabbatical from Washington but we hoped that if we and the children were content we might stay longer. We moved to a small village of 150 people just outside Beaune, in the center of Burgundy, put the children in French schools, and four years later we looked back on a wonderful experience that changed our lives.

FIRST STEPS IN BURGUNDY: When we arrived in 1993 the wine business was in the dumps because of the world recession and a glut of fine wine. As we worked our way through the recession I was able to taste a variety of old, young and great wines with some of the greatest winemakers in the world. In addition, because we lived, worked and had our children in French schools, we were not perceived as tourists and were welcomed into the hidden Burgundy as parents and friends. And thus had a unique and wonderful experience.

Nuits-St-Georges Wine

Cote de Nuits, Burgundy

View all products

Inhabiting the bottom end of the northern half of the Côte d’Or, Nuits-St-Georges is a busy, market-driven town and home to many of Burgundy’s negociants. It is also the largest town in the Côte d’Or after Beaune and contributes "nuits" to the name of Côte de Nuits (i.e., the northern half of the Côte d’Or).

The appellation itself is divided into two parts, where in the north it directly borders Vosne-Romanée, the southerly end is the commune of Prémeaux. There are no Grands Crus in this village, though it does have a large number of Premiers Crus.

The best Nuits-St-Georges Pinot Noir are layered with cherry, plum, underbrush and sandalwood. The fruit is sweet, the wine energetic, and the finish long and lush.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
