Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Rues de Chaux – Cuvée Camille Rodier
Côte de Nuits|
Level: Premier Cru
|AOC: Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru|
|Grapes: Pinot Noir|
Deep colour and rich aromatic palette alternating between small red fruit, stone fruit and notes of resin, undergrowth and delicate spice.It reveals a smooth, solid and well-honed structure that is challenged by a certain elegance and lightened by the wine's fine yet tense tannins. This same duality is found on the palate which discloses smooth notes of blackcurrant jam, candied cherry and liquorice combined with aromas of pelt, resin and tar. A premier cru with excellent potential for bottle ageing.
Low-temperature eggs cooked "en cocotte" , duck breast, beef filet tournedos
