The Wine:
In Burgundy the monopoly (or monopole) defines a unit of land, a terroir which has been perfectly defined for centuries and which is owned by a single proprietor. The Clos des Forêts Saint Georges covers the entire geological range of the slopes of Nuits Saint Georges: Ladoix limestone at the bottom, Premeaux limestone in the middle, and white oolite limestone in the upper part, with a marked presence of ochre silt in some places. This Clos is planted entirely to Pinot Noir. 

Manually harvested, minimal vatting, pumping over and punching down to reveal the full aromatic range drawn from this great terroir. Ageing lasts on average 15 months in oak barrels, with a maximum of 50% new barrels, and 3 months in vats before bottling.

The colour is deep and the nose reveals aromas of ripe fruit. The complex bouquet carries through to the palate: a delightful blend of spices, flowers and fruit. The tannins are silky, delicate and precise with an elegant and refreshing length on the finish.

The Review:
Stuart Pigott, James Suckling.com - 95pts
"Complex nose of red berries, savory and wet earth with just a hint of candied citrus peel. Quite a bold and seriously structured wine with excellent depth for the challenging vintage, but nothing even remotely approaching a hard edge. This will need some time to give its best, but the balance is there at the simultaneously crisp and velvety finish. From biodynamically grown grapes. Best from 2025."
