Nicolas Faure ‘Les Herbues’ Pinot Noir Nuits-Saint-Georges, France 2018


Domaine Nicolas Faure is a one man operation out of Meuilley, a lesser known village in Nuits Saint Georges. Nicolas is from Bordeaux, studied wine in Beaune and got to dabble in some winemaking at Chave and DRC. He started making his own wines in 2011, sourcing fruit and using a friend's facility. In 2014 he got his small winery in Meuilley, where he makes small amounts of wine from various vineyard plots in Burgundy. 

The 'Les Herbues' is 100% whole cluster Pinot Noir from silty clay soils. It's aged in used barrel for 16 months. Deep fruit on the nose and palate, nice structure. A serious little low production Burg.
