The famous Hospices de Nuits-Saint-Georges “Monopole” sits on a brown limestone soil, combined with pebbles of white oolite. It gives deep and intense wines with great ageing potential. powerful and balanced wines. What sets this cuvée apart is the blending of two Didiers wines. This gives it the structure of old vines and the juiciness of young ones. The result is a delightfully complex wine of great charm and good length.
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.
