Founded by Cistecian monks, the centuries-old Bertagna is one of Burgundy’s greatest Domaines. In a vintage of 2016’s undoubted quality their Nuits-Saint-Georges offer some of Burgundy’s deepest and most complex redsThe exceptional Les Murgers sits on the Vosne-Romanée side of Nuits Saint Georges, where deep mineral soils over limestone promote superb complexity Hand-sorting and cold maceration before fermentation ensure the purest expression of fruit, with extra weight from 15-18 months in best French oakAs Jancis Robinson MW has commented, 2016 was a “seriously delicious” vintage. But with yields decimated by hail, the stars (like this) are in short supply. A must for the connoisseur’s cellar . Delicate aromas of red berries and darker cherries alongside an earthy aspect of truffle. Tannins are already well-integrated into a fleshy, silky palate. Exceptional concentration. A wine with years left to offer.
