Pierre Naigeon – Herbeux 2017, Vieilles Vignes – Nuits Saint-Georges

The nose is fruity and offers a small power/concentration and a fine intensity. It reveals notes of cherry, violet and small notes of green pepper associated with fine touches of cassis, small black plum as well as fine hints of cornflower, cardamom and nutmeg/spices. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers an acidulous frame, tension, a racy minerality, fat, suavity as well as a fine straightness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of cherry, plum and small notes of small wild red fruits associated with touches of fresh flowers as well as fine hints of crunchy blueberry, varietal and very fine hints of spices. Good length. A very discreet hint of cocoa and tannins on the persistence.
