Overlooking the slopes of Gevrey-Chambertin and extending as far as the wood of Corton, the Hautes Côtes de Nuits
have a wild beauty.
The Hautes Côtes de Nuits colour is crimson or dark ruby, sometimes leaning towards strawberry. They boast aromas of
cherry, liquorice, and sometimes violet. They have a firm, straightforward taste, tannins pleasant once matured, and just the right amount of body.
The Pinot Noir yields a very small amount of rosé wine which bears the appellation Bourgogne rosé (or Bourgogne clairet) Hautes Côtes de Nuits.
The whites (Chardonnay, or very rarely Pinot Blanc or Pinot Gris) are white-gold to pale gold in colour, or, if aged in barrel, yellow gold. Notes of aubepine and honeysuckle mingle with apple, lemon, white deadnettle and hazelnut. In the mouth, they are fleshy, solidly built, well-balanced, and with an easily-recognisable touch of friskiness which
improves their aging potential.
