Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Roncière, Magnum 1995, Joseph Drouhin


SKU: 34867287715 Categories: ,

The word “Roncière” comes from “roncier” (bramble bush) and refers to a place once covered with brambles. The site has excellent due east exposure, on a mild incline. The soil is not too rocky, but deep and with good drainage. This is a thoroughly mature Burgundy, with complex aromas and flavours of truffle, cedar, saffron, smoked paprika (lots of that) and pipe tobacco. Savoury and peppery, with a hint of dusty track in high summer. This really deserves some time to meditate. Drink now-2026
