Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Les Corvées Pagets Mag
100% Pinot Noir. 16 months in barrique, of which 30% new ones.
The vineyard is just north of Premeaux-Prissey, in a midslope position, in the south part of Nuits Saint George's premier crus belt. Very thin soil, stony and with presence of sand and clay, laying on a limestone bed rock.
Tannins and body for this blue blooded Pinot Noir. Nose is really rich and plenty of black fruits. Earth, tobacco.
This magnum is not for kids.
