Druerne til denne 1. Cru Les Procès kommer fra en 0,55 ha. mark ved indkørslen til Premeeaux-Prissey i hjertet af et gammelt Clos (mark omkranset af mur af sten) med over 40 år gamle vinstokke. Vinen byder på en utrolig imødekommende bouquet af supermoden bærfrugt, mokka, vanille, trøffel og et hint af rose. Smagen er meget fyldig og rig på moden frugt og en usædvanlig mineralsk finish, grundet den meget fattige og stenede undergrund.

A strikingly pretty nose layers cool red berry fruit aromas with those of earth and plenty of floral influences. There is both good tension and an attractive mouthfeel to the delicious flavors that also lean out slightly on the otherwise solidly persistent finish.
This small premier cru is in the southern part of Nuits was badly damaged by hail, but sunny weather meant there was no rot. What remained of the crop turned out beautifully. The dense cherry nose is imposing and forthright, yet shows beguiling fragrance too. Plump and suave, this is fleshy but concentrated, displaying breadth of flavour as well as weight. It may be a touch less precise than some other crus but it has splendid fruit and good length. Drinking Window 2022 - 2038 .
The vineyard suffered from an additional small hail storm on 6th August but the Arnoux-Lachaux team removed any scarred grapes. They were able to keep the whole bunches as the stems had lignified. Deeper mid purple, backward nose, signs of concentration. Indeed there is a sweet intensity of deep dark fruit which sweeps to the back of the palate. Tasted: November 2019
From an enclave within Aux Corvées, Lachaux's 2018 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos des Corvées Pagets was hailed on three times and yielded only 15 hectoliters per hectare, but the wine has turned out brilliantly, unwinding in the glass with notes of orange rind, ripe red berries and sweet soil tones, framed by a deft touch of oak. Medium to full-bodied, deep and complete, it's lively and perfumed, concluding with a long and precise finish. Despite the hail, there's not even the remotest suggestion of tannic asperity.
