Situated halfway between Dijon and Beaune, Nuits-Saint-Georges gives its name to the Côte de Nuits. The vineyard of Les Crots looks due East and as it is at the top of an escarpment the vines are worked using a terrace system. The soil is shallow and stony. The wines of Nuits Saint-Georges are well-known for being solid and age-worthy: with a glistening deep red color, powerful and complex aromas of small red and black fruits (cherry, blackcurrant) are revealed which evolve into more complex aromas of leather, truffle and spice with hints of licorice and macerated fruit such as prunes. Whilst young the tannins give this wine backbone and body but during aging, the tannins soften and the wine becomes smoother.
The Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Crots 2011 has a shimmering garnet color. It is complex on the nose with notes of coffee, blackcurrants, licorice and cardamom with a smokey aspect. This wine is captivating in the mouth with aromas of blackcurrant, licorice and a minty touch. It is a powerful wine with great freshness.
