The Nuits-Saint-Georges premier cru “Chateau Gris” has a interesting minerality. It’s made from a monopole vineyard located just south of the village – at the top of the slope. The Chateau Gris monopole is a part of the climate Les Crots – and the Chateau Gris estate itself is located in this vineyard. In the nose raspberries and red currant spiced with a nice slightly chalky minerality. On the palate quite rich and broad with a lovely energy and minerality from the limestone soil. It’s quite long and intense with a lovely cool airy style and an interesting minerality. Very interesting terroir – should not be overlooked.
