The Hautes Côtes are increasingly coming into their own in hotter, drier Burgundian vintages. This pale, delicate, refreshing Pinot Noir comes from a 1.53-hectare parcel close to Vosne-Romanée at 380 metres of altitude and has impressive freshness and lift, despite being picked last. Spice and tobacco notes from 30% whole bunches add extra complexity. Drinking Window 2021 - 2026. (TA)
*Burghound Outstanding Value!!* A slightly more elegant and very pretty array of ripe yet cool red pinot and currant aromas introduce nicely detailed flavors that possess a finer mouthfeel while exhibiting a refreshing touch of salinity on the more complex finale. This is a lovely example of the genre from the Hauts Côtes and worth checking out.
The 2018 Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits comes from 1.53 hectares of vine. It is more backward and a little more sultry than the Bourgogne Rouge at this stage. The palate is more generous, offering good body, plenty of tart red cherries and strawberry and touches of orange peel toward the finish. It might need six months in bottle just to cohere a little, but should drink nicely for up to three years. (NM)
