Domaine Alain Michelot, Nuits-Saint-Georges Vieilles Vignes
Domaine Alain Michelot, Nuits-Saint-Georges Vieilles Vignes - All the richness of old vines of at least 45 years of age, gives this powerful, aromatic Nuits-Saint-Georges a wonderful texture, complex flavours of blackberry, blackcurrant and smoke, and a long, elegant flavoursome finish.
Alain Michelot is a Nuits-Saint-Georges specialist: of the domaine's eight hectares, 7.5 are in Nuits. The fourth generation at the domaine, Alain, though still in charge, has handed the winemaking reins to his daughter Elodie, and the wines have gained in finesse and purity as a result.
With only the oldest vines being used for the Nuits-Saint-Georges itself, the younger vines in Nuits produce fruit for his Bourgogne Rouge. The grapes were entirely destemmed, then fermented at no more than 30ºC before transfer to barrel.
