From vines above Volnay, this is the best budgeteer value choice in the cellar, with a whole lot of substance for not a lot of buckos. Just like last year, a go to value play….
“From vines located at the top of Volnay, the 2014 Hautes Côtes de Beaune (minus two fruit flies that took a bath in my glass) has a clean and pure, cassis-tinged bouquet with a nice lift. The palate is very well balanced with fine tannin and crisp acidity, very classy with good tension and mineralité towards the finish. The texture is so silky that you would think there is some new oak here, but Thomas Bouley told me there is absolutely none. This comes highly recommended.” 88-90 points Neil Martin
