Hautes Côtes de Nuits "Le Clos du Prieuré"

Presentation

The wine
Always harvested after the harvest of the parcels located on the Côte, whereas it is usually necessary to wait 1 week to 10 days more for the vines located at this altitude.
This parcel produces supple and deep Hautes-Côtes de Nuits, with always a very beautiful maturity, favoured by its slope and its south-facing exposure.
