Hautes côtes de Nuits Blanc

Terroir

This vineyard is at an altitude of 300-400 metres. The vines are planted on the slopes of the valleys that cut into the Jurassic limestone plateaux west of the "Côte".

Vinification & Elevage

The grapes are harvested by hand and placed in small crates to prevent the bunches being compacted. For our white wines, the grapes are brought whole to our pneumatic wine press. Slow gentle pressing allows the juices to be extracted in the best possible conditions. These juices are then placed in a settling vat and cooled to 8° for 24 hours to clarify them. Lastly, they are placed directly in oak barrels (20 % of which are new) for alcoholic fermentation over 10-12 months.

Commentaries by our oenologist

Our Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits is an ideal introduction to Burgundy's most prestigious appellations. It has a delicate woody note, with aromas of fresh fruit and spices. In the finish, this elegant wine is well balanced in the mouth with a touch of salinity.
