Domaine Gachot-Monot Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Poulettes 2016



Intense garnet, the nose immediately reveals red cherry and prune characters intermingled with earthy, gamey notes, with some decanting time expanding into smoke, woodspice, forest floor and hay, with herbal and floral elements such as rosehip and lavender. The palate is rich and concentrated but defined by elegance – smooth and layered with melt-in-the-mouth tannins and a long, meandering finish.

Les Poulettes is a single plot on the hillside south of Nuits St Georges and a prized 1er Cru of this world famous appellation.

At its peak 6 to 8 years after bottling.

Producer: Domaine Gachot-Monot

Five successive generations have been at the head of this family run estate situated in Corgoloin on the border of Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune. The recent history is highlighted by two women who contributed to the domaine’s longevity: Marguerite Monot, who ran the vineyard alone from 1950 to 1980, and her only daughter Marie Therese, who, with the help of her husband Jean Pierre Gachot, renovated, replanted and gave their name to the Domaine. Marie Therese's son Damien now runs Domaine Gachot-Monot with his Danish wife, Liselotte.

The vineyard today covers about 18 hectares mainly planted with Pinot Noir and is entirely cultivated according to a philosophy of respect for the soil and the vine, with vinification following Burgundian traditions to reveal and reflect the subtleties of the soils. The wines sell out every vintage, carefully bottled at the estate's own winery after 14 to 16 months maturing in oak barrels and released on allocation around 6 months later.
