NICOLAS FAURE - NUITS-SAINT-GEORGES "LES HERBUES" 2018 - $145
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.
PIERRE-HENRI ROUGEOT - COTE DE NUITS VILLAGES "PLANTES DU BOIS" 2018 - $105
The "Plantes aux Bois" vineyard enjoys a great location, meters away from the premier cru Clos de la Maréchal in Nuits-St-Georges. All velvet, powerful nose of blueberries, fresh dark cherries and lovely earthy tones enlaced in spicy notes. The palate is vibrant, generous, with delectable fruits and a long finish. That is great village wine. 100% Pinot Noir.
