- Tasting Notes
Pronounced floral aromas add a touch of elegance to the well-layered combination of red currant, plum, earth and a hint of tea. There is both good punch and muscle to the focused medium-bodied flavors that exhibit a subtle minerality on the saline, complex and beautifully persistent finish. This is lovely and much less Nuits in character than the Procès though with that said, this too is going to require extended cellaring.

The 2015 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos des Corvées Pagets, one of Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux’s emblematic wines, wafts from the glass with a complex bouquet of plums, candied peel, violets and raspberries. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and complete, with a deep core of fruit, crystalline purity, and fine-grained but chalky tannins. Structurally, this is classic Premeaux.

Medium red. Sexy aromas of raspberry, blackberry, flowers and spices. A step up in texture from Les Procès, but with its fat and sweetness nicely countered by harmonious acidity. This juicy wine finishes firm and floral, if without quite the precision or thrust of Les Procès.
