About the Vineyard:
Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Ronciere 1er cru lies in the "Zone de Saint-Georges" or central section of Nuits-Saint-Georges near the town itself. Ronciere takes its name because the soil is so poor that it is said only "ronces" (mulberries) can grow there. It is produced from a 0.5-hectare parcel from vines planted in 1959.
The grapes are destemmed and maceration a froid usually lasts just a day or two. The alcoholic fermentation is spontaneous and malolactic fermentation occurs in barrel. Depending on the vintage, the proportion of new oak is around 30-60% for the premier crus.
The wine shows aromas and flavors of red berries, herbs, and purple flowers. The palate is rich with ripe fruit and medium weight with bright acidity and fine tannins. Aging in 30-60% new Burgundian piece brings notes of vanilla, toast, and baking spices.
JM94, Jasper Morris
"Rich deep and even crimson purple. Comes across as dark and meaty after Les Rouges. Etienne thinks it has a similar profile of limestone soil. Properly rich with a drier chalky finish, good acidity. Robust and will take time. Etienne stresses the underlying freshness, given the ripeness."
"This half-hectare holding in Aux Roncières, to the south of the village, is gently handled to produce a dark, cassis-scented fruit, with savoury, earthy notes of a slightly rustic nature which is very typically of Nuits. The tannins are firm and rugged, plus there is a rewarding mineral depth that comes out on the finish."
