This Nuits-St-Georges Pinot Noir is silky and very complex.

Domaine Nicolas Faure is a micro Domaine crafting wines of impressive elegance. Each of Nicolas’ tiny vineyards receives Grand Cru care and the very high quality reached by his wines is obtained through countless hours spent in the vineyards. He ensures this through mini interventions and traditional practices executed with precision. The “Les Herbues” vineyard is located in the North of the Village of Nuits-St-Georges right on the border of Vosne-Romanée. Being on that side of Nuits-St-Georges means the wine is in essence pretty with silky lines.

It has fresh minty notes; deep black fruit, cooked sherry, juniper and a long lasting finish with velvet tannins. It can be paired with charcuterie, beef burgundy, coq aux vin or cow’s milk cheese. The Nuits-St-Georges “Les Herbues” can be enjoyed in its youth by decanting it for 45 minutes before serving and it can be cellared until 2024 or longer. 100% Pinot Noir. 1155 bottles produced.

"Nicolas’ wine embodies the beauty of Pinot Noir on great terroirs. This Nuits-St-Georges “Les Herbues” is sexy, nicely tied up with a charming fruit to it."

At Domaine Nicolas Faure the technique used is traditional. After being carefully sorted in the vineyard, the grapes are brought to the small winery. The harvested grapes are all put in a wooden tank to undergo alcoholic fermentation. After 21 days the juice is pumped into French oak barrels without adding further oak. The remaining berries and stems are pressed in a traditional vertical press to gently extract the ripe tannins and some extra fruit. Then the wine undergoes its malo-lactic fermentation and matures in oak barrels before bottling without filtration.
