Arnaud Baillot Nuits-Saint-Georges Village Red 2020
Arnaud Baillot Nuits-Saint-Georges Village red has a deep red colour. Powerful and elegant nose filled with cherry, blackberry and cedarwood aromas. The wine has a beautiful balance between structure and softness. Closes with a long aftertaste of fruit syrup and mild spices.
100% Pinot Noir. The fruit comes from organic vineyards located in the AOC Nuits-Saint-Georges Village with an eastern exposure. The vines grow in limestone and marl soil whilst under the influence of a continental climate with slightly higher temperatures and rainfall.
Manual harvesting through parcel-by-parcel ripeness monitoring and with grape sorting. Traditional fermentation in stainless steel tanks for 15 days. No punching, pumping over twice a day until the end of fermentation. The wine then ages in Burgundy Oak for 12 months, 25% new oak. No filtering before bottling.
