Usually a great wine for laying down, Les Porrets-Saint-Georges have given us an exceptional wine, containing all the elements of a cuvee of tremendous longevity and complexity. Its particular soils of deep, brown limestone that is very gravelly, and pebbles of white oolite, have ensured harmonious growth in the vines. This vintage is an archetypal Nuits-Saint-Georges premier cru because of its richness and its power, while retaining a certain minerality.
Vinification and aging:
The harvest is completely destemmed before being placed in the vat. Fermentation starts naturally thanks to indigenous yeasts.
In March, after 6 months of aging and following the auction, the acquired barrels leave the Hospices cellar and settle in the cellar of Château de Charmont, next to the Premiers and Grands Crus of Maison Edouard Delaunay.
The wine finishes its aging in its original barrel or is re-intoned if we deem it necessary for its good development.After 9 months of aging in our cellars, the wines are then ready to be bottled and reach the cellars of our customers.
The estate produces 140 barrels each year, divided into 18 vintages.
