Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux Nuits Saint Georges Les Procès 2012


SKU 10818


This 0.63 hectare vineyard is situated in the middle of the slope. The soil here is made of clay and limestone, which ensures a certain minerality in the wine; the average age of the vines is about 40 years old. The wine is fermented 30% whole-cluster; the fruit is put in tank without any crushing. A cold soak follows, then the alcoholic fermentation takes place with very little intervention,with pump-overs and punch-downs as needed. The wine is then gravity-fed into French oak barrels (60% one-year-old, 40% new) for malolactic fermentation and aging.
