A beautifully tense red wine from Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru

Originating from a vineyard of 3.45 hectares in the Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru appellation, the Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru "Aux Perdrix" of the Domaine des Perdrix is a single-varietal Pinot Noir red wine. The vines are planted on clay-limestone soils, which are predominantly clayey. The wine is aged in oak barrels (40% in new barrels) for an average of 15 months. This cuvée is a quasi-monopole of the property (99% of the parcels owned by the Perdrix domain).

With its pretty and bright garnet colour and purplish reflections, the Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru "Aux Perdrix" 2015 of domaine des Perdrix reveals a nose with aromas of fresh fruit, berries (raspberries), sweet spices (cinnamon, nutmeg), along with subtle notes of graphite. On the palate, the acidity is magnificent. The wine offers a splendid tension and a formidable minerality, revealing also, consistent with the nose, tasty touches of grainy red fruits. To keep until 2024-2026.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Aux Perdrix reveals a ripe and seductive bouquet of cherry, rose petal and a lavish application of creamy new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, fine-grained and ample, with juicy acids and a long, dramatic finish. This doesn't have the depth or dimension of the Les 8 Ouvrées bottling, but it's a very nice example in its extravagant style.
