Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Didiers – Cuvée Cabet
Côte de Nuits|
Level: Premier Cru
|AOC: Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru|
|Grapes: Pinot Noir|
This fantastic wine shows a deep red hue with dark hints. Small red and black berries on the nose mingle with slightly oaky accents, a touch of vanilla, blond caramel and coffee. Generous and powerful on the mouth, with a firm tannic backbone mean a great ageing potential. With a few more years liquorice, leather and sloe will add to the sophistication of this very fine Burgundy.
Refined cuisine will honour this "grand Bourgogne". Pan-fried foie gras, Charolais (local) t-bone steak or character cheese will be good pairings.
This cuvée Cabet comes from « Les Didiers », a terroir that is a monopoly from the Hospices de Nuits-Saint-Georges estate (single owner)
