Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Porêts-Saint-Georges" 2002 - Alain Michelot
Forest is one of the wines of the golden triangle of Nuits-Saint-Georges with Quail and Vaucrains. It will be delicate but structured, full and rich. A beautiful bottle. The wines of the area are built to Michelot custody but after decantation, they can also be enjoyed after a few years. Prices are relatively reasonable for the quality of wines on offer. 8 hectares vineyard estate located in Nuits-Saint-Georges, close to the town hall, right in the heart of Nuits-Saint-Georges. This is one of the flagship estate of the commune of Nuits. Even if Alain Michelot remains somewhat here at the estate, his daughter, Elodie, is basically the one in charge of the wines production. She joined the family estate in 1996, followed by her husband in 1998. Without losing the power that has established the estate reputation, the wines have gained in finesse and elegance. Even if they are best enjoyed when they are young, they need some time to become harmonious. The vineyard has a nice range of “Premiers Crus” (first growths) in Nuits-Saint-Georges and, since 2010, manages a parcel of Clos Vougeot.
