This wine is from the village of Nuits-St. Georges, from a single vineyard held by the Marchand family for generations, called Aux Herbues. This small vineyard is actually the northernmost in the appellation, and shares a border with the highest ranked appellation of Vosne Romanee. This cuvee is certainly more weighty and muscular than the Volnay, as can be expected. Intense aromas of red fruit, licorice, some toast, with a hint of flinty minerality. Relatively big tannins yield to a plush mouthfeel from the blend of oak barrels across different stages of use. This blend clearly punches above its weight class and will be a real joy to drink and cellar.
