The Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Terrasses Blanc is a very interesting wine. It’s made from the village part of the climate Les Crots – on terraces above the Chateau Gris estate. The soil is limestone and this gives the wine a quite unique style compared to other whites from Nuits-Saint-Georges. In the nose fresh notes of citrus, white orchard fruits and a chalky minerality. On the palate quite rich and broad with a lovely fruit and a intense but very harmonious minerality. The acidity is crisp and with a good energy. It’s very balanced with a good inner harmony, and without the slightly edgy minerality found in some whites from this appellation. Check this out!
