Overlooking the Gevrey-Chambertin slope and stretching to the Corton wood, the vineyards of the Hautes Côtes de Nuits are located on a plateau just above the famed Côte de Nuits, at an altitude of between 300 and 400 metres.
SoilPlanted in calcareous clay soil (originating in the Jurassic period), the orientation of the vineyards ranges from south to east, which gives the vines optimal exposure to the sun.
Grape variety100 % Pinot Noir.
VinificationVinification takes place in temperature-controlled vats at 28-30°C with punching of the cap before being aged for 8 to 12 months in oak barrels.
RobeGorgeous deep ruby red colour.
NoseThis wine is redolent of vegetal notes such as blackcurrant buds and floral notes reminiscent of grape vine flowers.
PalateNice density; a spherical wine. Structured tannins on the finish. Lovely depth for the appellation and the vintage.
Serve withThis wine is a good match for roasted or grilled meats such as rack of lamb with rosemary or honey-glazed pork spareribs, even with a wild boar paté. As for cheeses, soft creamy ones such as Brie de Meaux, Gorgonzola, or Brillat-Savarin will really show it off.
