Gilbert & Gaillard 89pts:
Beautiful young-looking, clean red. Sterling quality fruit on the nose with cherry overtones and a faint smoke touch in the background. Lightweight framework on the palate yet very enjoyable, quality fruit.
From the importer:
The Hautes-Côtes vineyard is located at Arcenant, a small village in the middle of the Meuzin valley, 7 km west of Nuits- Saint-Georges. It is situated on a south-east exposed slope at an altitude reaching 360m to 420m (it is almost 100m higher than the Côte vineyard!). This difference in altitude imposes a later harvest than on the Côte (almost 8 days later).
For the first 6 months, the wine is kept in large oak barrels in a very old cellar located underneath Jean Gros' house. For the following 12 months, maturation continues in traditional barrels, which have stored higher ranked wines. Average age of the vines is 35 years old
