This is the third vintage for his Hautes Côtes de Nuits bottling, taken principally from the Combe de Nuits, just beyond the villages level boundary. I think that this is an outstanding everyday option not just in the context of the full range here, but in Burgundy in general. It has substance and style, quite a complete and pleasurable little critter…….value hounds, this is you…..
“A ripe, fresh and attractively layered nose blends notes of various dark berries and plum with those of discreet violet and oak nuances. There is fine richness, and particularly so for a wine from the Hautes Côtes, to the sleek and appealingly textured middle weight flavors that offer both good depth and persistence on the ever-so-slightly warm finale. This is a quality effort for its level and worth checking out. (86-89)/2022+” Allan Meadows ————> “particularly outstanding for their respective appellations and especially merit your attention”.
