Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits Rouge

Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits Rouge bottle

The first distinctive feature of this vineyard is that it is 50 years old and naturally produces few grapes. Surrounded by walls, the grapes always reach full maturity. Furthermore, the vines produce very small bunches of Pinot Noir grapes with very thick skins, which guarantees superb concentration of the wine that is made with them. Vine growing techniques are also very particular: limited yields due to severe de-budding, green harvest if needed, working of the soil, no or infrequent use of fertilizers, environmentally friendly pest management, respecting beneficial wildlife.

From a bio-dynamic vineyard showing citrusy fruit, lots of energy and character.
  • Winemaking

    The wine is barrel-aged for 11 months, 50 % new barrels (wood of french origin with a long heating at low temperature for a very delicate woody taste).

  • Nose

    Very open with notes of red fruits (blackberries, raspberries) and some spicy notes.

  • Palate

    Good acidity, freshness is required, very good length.
