Maison Shaps Nuits-Saint-Georges 2014
This lieu dit (vineyard site) is located just below the 1er Cru “Les Saint Georges.” The pinot noir vines from this site produce a very structured fruit. The grapes are destemmed and partially crushed with 15% whole cluster fruit included. We ferment the pinot to full dryness on the skins with extended post fermentation maceration. This vintage is aged in 1/3 new French oak barrels and has developed, firm tannins. The flavors of dark cherry, flowers and black currants are leveraged by the expression of the terroir.
