Domaine des Perdrix - Nuits St Georges - 1er Cru aux Perdrix - red - 2015 - 750ml
WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
“The 2015 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Aux Perdrix reveals a ripe and seductive bouquet of cherry, rose petal and a lavish application of creamy new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, fine-grained and ample, with juicy acids and a long, dramatic finish. This doesn't have the depth or dimension of the Les 8 Ouvrées bottling, but it's a very nice example in its extravagant style.”William Kelley, Wine Advocate
Domaine des Perdrix is a small wine estate of 12 hectares based in Nuits-Saint-Georges in the Côte de Nuits, including the “climat” Aux Perdrix, which is almost a monopole of the Domaine. Since 1996, it is part of the Domaine Devillard.
Domaine des Perdrix was taken over in 1996 by the Devillard family. All vineyards were in perfect condition. High investments have been realized in the Cuverie, in order to take advantage of the present techniques. With 12 hectares of vines, mainly in Nuits-Saints-Georges, Domaine des Perdrix owns and exploits the entire surface of the vineyard site “Aux Perdrix” of 3.5 hectares except for 1%. It is why it is almost considered as a monopole of the Domaine. The Domaine also extends over some other great terroirs of Vosne-Romanée and Echézeaux Grand Cru (situated in “Echézeaux du dessus”, right in the centre of this prestigious vineyard). More than half of the vineyards are Premiers Crus and Grand Crus. The vineyard is cultivated with meticulous care, and yields are kept very low, producing deeply coloured, intensely flavoured, and full-bodied wines that retain nonetheless the elegance and balance of the greatest red Burgundies along with the hallmark red fruit and floral bouquet.
