Pierre Andre Nuits-Saint-Georges 2012


SKU 03696


Founded in 1923, the firm of Pierre André was born at the foot of the hill of the grand cru Corton vineyard. Today Pierre André produces 28 Grand Cru wines, plus over 100 wines from villages all along the Côte d'Or. The overall house style is one that represents the terroir of each village and vineyard, while also exposing concentration of fruit flavors to balance the classic acidity and tannin of Burgundy. All of the grapes are handpicked by vineyard manager Jacques Briday's team, and minimal intervention is used by winemaker Mathieu Carrara.

We tasted and positively loved this premier cru Nuits-Saint-Georges from the Les Saint-Georges vineyard. Big, deep and sexy in style, the black cherry, black plum, black truffle and Asian spice flavors wrap around the palate with velvety, lush tannins. From time to time a Pinot Noir will be compared to a Right Bank Merlot-based Bordeaux and vice versa. This is one of those times. The vintage 2012 packed alot of flavor here and vineyard gave incredibly complex results.
