Domaine Chauvenet Chopin Nuits St Georges Les Charmottes 2016
This is a powerful wine, with a sophisticated structure, that comes from vines that are 60+ years old. Sustainable agriculture, hand harvesting, and indigenous yeasts add to its quality.
Dark and savoury, with bold spice and rich berry fruit. Decent weight and fine tannins bode well for longevity. Vinification was in stainless steel vats plus there has been partial new oak aging for 14-16 months.
