Appellation: Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Grape: Pinot Noir
Producer: Bertrand Chevillon Format: 75cl
Les Roncières is a 0.97 hectare premier cru vineyard located between Les Porrets and Les Pruliers to the south of the Nuits St Georges village.
Mid-slope at an altitude of 250 to 300 metres, the 45 year old vines face east to south-east enabling an earlier ripening of the fruit. Here the
light brown soils have a thin gravel scree with a high limestone content are on a bedrock of white oolite over pink Prémeaux limestone.
This is almost a blend of the Bousselots and the Chaignots with aromatic elegance and precision of the former with the earthy, slightly rustic
quality of the latter but it's the superb intensity and balance that really sets the Roncières apart. This may be the best effort with this wine
since the outstanding '93.
