The Chateau Gris castle was built in the
18th century in the middle of its 3.5 ha (8.6 acre) walled vineyard.
After the vines were destroyed by phylloxera, the roof of the castle was
covered with grey slate whereas tiles are traditionally used in
Burgundy. The people of Nuits-Saint-Georges therefore began to refer to
it as Château Gris (“grey castle”) and the name stuck.
Tasting :The nose develops aromas with
predominant floral and mineral nuances along with a hint of toast. On
the palate, this wine is very straightforward and round with a distinct
mineral base, some nuances of liquorice, and an elegant, discrete woody
flavour. Good overall length.
Food/wine pairing: Ideal with fine fish, crustaceans, poultry in sauce and full-flavoured cheeses.
Serving and keeping Serve between 10° and 12°C. (50°F - 54°F)
