The 2014 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru les Chaignots comes from 1.55 hectares of 60-year-old vines. It has a well-defined, slightly masculine bouquet that requires some encouragement. Darker fruit here than the Village Cru, yet still detailed. The palate is brisk and lively on the opening, quite citric in the mouth, darker fruit than say, Mugneret-Gibourg's own Les Chaignots -- but with a brightness and lucidity coming through on the "playful" finish. Very fine.
Very impressive nose, where an earthy, bracken depth of fruit displaying truffle and smoky qualities marries bold, dark cherry and blackberry fruit. A fine edge of sweetness on the palate has a slightly caramel quality, with a rounded, juicy plum and red cherry core. Supple, with a dry tannic background really filling in quite dense and full, and good acidity. A lovely, powerful but not inelegant style.

The French Wine region of Burgundy (aka “Bourgogne”) may be small in size, but its influence is huge in the world of vino. The complexity of Burgundy can cast fear into the heart of even a seasoned wine pro, but fear not – the region need only be as complicated as you want it to be. Yes, it is home to some of the most expensive wines in the known universe, but there are also tasty and affordable wines.

Main grapes:

Pinot Noir originated in Burgundy and these vines cover 34% of the region, accounting for 29% of overall wine production. The red grape does extremely well in limestone and clay soil, which helps create their complexity. Pinot Noir wines from Burgundy range in colour from cherry to brick, are light in body, and typically have red fruit and spicy flavours. Gamay is a red grape also grown in Burgundy, but only makes up 10% of the vines.

Chardonnay is the primary grape for white wines in Burgundy, making up 48% of the vines and 68% of production. Chardonnay appreciates Burgundy’s marl soil, which gives it delicate floral, fruit, and mineral aromas and full-bodied flavours. Aligoté is the second white grape, accounting for 6% grown. {Read more about the ancient Aligoté grape in Burgundy.}

The region does produce a sparkling wine called Crémant de Bourgogne. It can be made from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Aligoté, Gamay, Sacy, and Melon. Varieties include blanc, blanc de blancs, blanc de noirs, and rosé.
