Domaine D‘Ardhuy Nuits Saint Georges

Varietal Composition

Pinot Noir

Fermentation Method

The grapes are harvested manually, sorted, crushed and destemmed. Fermentation is started rapidly without maceration.
Colour, aromas and tannins are extracted naturally (no enzyme addition, no forced heat extraction) only through punching of the cap. Vatting time is 12-14 days. Free-run wine and first press are blended, settled cold and put in barrels. The wine is left to mature in barrels, 30% of which are new oak. Oak from different regions is used, but the principal source is Bertranges. Maturing takes place over a year; the wine is then bottled with no fining, and only a slight filtration.
