Nicolas Morin is an outsider in Burgundy, having left a career as a barrel maker in Champagne to set up his micro-négociant business out of immaculate premises in Nuits-Saint-Georges.  Nicolas still makes his own barrels and unsurprisingly his wines are a true reflection of this solid work-ethic and resolute independence.

Working hard with his growers to ensure that farming is sustainable and the work in the vineyard done by hand wherever possible, Nicolas controls picking dates which means grapes are at perfect maturity.  

There is no dogmatic approach to destemming so depending on ripeness, a proportion of whole-clusters make it into the vat where he makes skilled use of gentle semi-carbonic maceration.  Racking or gentle foot-treading only to minimise the extraction of unwanted tannins, which means he can use as little sulphur as possible. 

In 2016 there was little fruit available in Burgundy so Nico ventured south to a Biodynamic vineyard located on the slopes of Ventoux. He took his own picking team to harvest this Syrah and Grenache which was then treated to usual vinification style back in NSG.
