Chezeaux Nuits St Georges Les Charbonnieres Vieilles Vignes 2018
"A small gem of a domaine," is how our distributor Neal Rosenthal describes this tiny but exquisite winemaker. Chezaux offers incredible value for those in the know. The Chezeaux family owns almost four hectares of vineyards within the village appellation of Nuits Saint Georges. The vineyards are found within a number of lieu-dits but the ultimate cuvée that is bottled is principally from the Charbonniere site supplemented by Les Chaliots and Aux Saint Julien. The vines are very old, some being planted over eighty years ago (written as of early 2012). The soil is a mix of silts of clay, reddish-brown in color, overlain with limestone pebbles. The wine is supple and elegant with notes of dark cherry, violet, and just a hint of minerality.
