Nuits-Saint-Georges "Les Montroziers"

  • The vintage
    • 2020 is a solar vintage yet the wines show a lot of freshness. The yields are low but the quality is excellent with a perfect degree of ripeness. The harvest was early in the year under scortching weather and came to an end on September 1st. Our Côte de Nuits wines have a beautiful typicity: they are concentrated, floral and fresh with all the finesse of their grape variety.

    • Introduction

      This name pays tribute to the Faiveley family's ancestors who were, in the early 20th century, industrial leaders and statesmen. Amongst them was Maurice Colrat de Montrozier, great uncle and witness to the marriage of Guy Faiveley (5th generation) and Yvonne Faiveley in June of 1945 - an occasion that marked the coming together of two very different industries: wine and rail.

    • Winemaking

      The grapes are harvested and sorted by hand. The wines are punched down daily in order to extract colour, tannins and aromas from the skin of the grapes. After a 19 day vatting period, the alcoholic fermentation is complete. The free-run wine is run off using a gravity system whilst the marc is pressed slowly and gently to extract an exceptionally pure press wine.
      The wines are aged for 14 months in French oak barrels (20-30% new oak) which have been selected for their fine grain and moderate toast. The wines are left to age in our cellars at consistent, natural hygrometry and temperature. The wines are aged in vats for 2 months at the end of the ageing process.
