Chistophe Drag took over from his father in law, Jean Chauvenet in 1994. His methods are traditional, there is nothing overley interventionist, but they are thorough and very detailed. Low yields are key to quality and a hard prune of the 45 year old vines sets the right tone even before the grapes arrive. Also of note are manual harvesting, cold maceration, long malos and bottling without fining or filtration. This is serious wine making and one of the foremost addresses in Nuits Saint Georges.
This is almost always Drag's best wine and so it is again in 2012 with its beautifully layered nose of earthy liqueur of black raspberry and cassis aromas. It is also easily the biggest and most powerful wine in the range with exceptionally good richness to the tautly muscled large-scaled flavors that are shaped by firm and slightly rustic tannins that are buffered by a profusion of mouth coating dry extract on the hugely persistent and well-balanced finish. Note well however that moderate patience will be required. ♥ Outstanding
