Right in the heart of Nuits-Saint-Georges, this “climate” with its deep, limestone soil, offers us wines that some describe as having an “old-fashioned” character – austere, a little closed in their early days, and that need good maturity at the time of harvesting to really give of their best. It is a wine with great cellaring potential. One to be understood over time as it evolves, and will reward patience.
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.
