WHAT THE WINEMAKERS ARE SAYING
A rich and voluptuous Nuits Saint Georges. Very intense nose of blackberries and thorns. Ample mouth with creamy tannins.
The Cellier des Dames wines narrate the story of many of the “Dames de Bourgogne“, who, in their way, shaped what Burgundy became. At the forefront of the historical scene, these ladies associated with (and sometimes, but not always, married) the famous Dukes of Burgundy. These handcrafted wines have been created in their honour and in recognition of the impacts they had on the region, its vineyards, and its famous appellations. You’ll find the story of each Dame on the back label of their cuvée.
