2018 Bourgogne Hauts Cotes de Nuits - Albert Bichot
The Hautes-Côtes de Nuits are located on a plateau behind the famous Côte de Nuits (village of Nuits-Saint-Georges) at altitudes of 300 to 400 metres. Exposure varies from south to east, which allows the vines to benefit from maximum sunlight. The climate can sometimes be rough, with cold, snowy winters and cool summers. Consequently, the ripening of the grapes is slower. The resulting wines are characterized by their freshness, fruitiness and vivacity. Our know-how allows us to subtly balance these characteristics for added roundness and fullness.
Beautifully intense, primary floral, airy aromas with predominant scents of white blossoms (acacia). The palate is characterized by freshness and pleasing, straightforward, balanced minerality underscored by flavours of black and yellow plum.
Ideal with fine fish and seafood, this wine is also a good match for white meats, poultry in sauce and full-flavoured cheeses.
