This wine results from the blending of 3 plots:
- « En Bignon » and « Le Clou » from Nantoux
- and « Pierres percées » from Saint Romain.
The complexity and diversity of the different plots is expressed through the wine, which reveals the potential of the Hautes Cotes and the impact of altitude on the wine, which is why the “cuvée” is named after it.
Mainly traditional high density vineyard (10 000 vines per ha with Guyot cane pruning) and partly with lyre (double Guyot pruning)
Hand harvest at optimum maturity.
Winemaking : Careful extraction, small percentage of whole cluster, wooden fermenters.
Barrel aging: 12 months in average with 15% new oak.
TASTING & FOOD PAIRINGS
Stone fruit, hints of cedar and undergrowth form the aromatic structure of this wine.
The palate is very expressive, packed with delicious red and black fruit and showing a nice underlying acidity. This wine is true to the image we have of a perfect Burgundy, immensely pleasurable, refined and very "thirst-quenching".
Enjoy with a choice cut of meat, a vegetarian tagine with raisins or cow's cheeses.
Cellaring: 5-8 years
