Hautes-Côtes de Nuits "La Roche"

Story

The vintage
1786 bottles have been produced for the vintage 2018.
Location
1.28 ha planted in 1978.
It is located on the highest hillside of Nuits-Saint-Georges, in the village of Bevy, at an altitude of 400 meters.
Terroir
This soil is mainly composed of Chaille type limestone. It is a stone composed of a flint core and a limestone. The slope is oriented at 20% to the southeast.
This soil which contains a good proportion of limestone always offers a good freshness for wine. It is not a wine that needs to be aged for a long time because the altitude never gives a great density but rather aromas of fresh fruits and flowers.
We always pick the grapes about 1 week after the harvest in the Côtes de Nuits to have a good maturity.
Vinification
Harvesting is manual and entirely destemmed.
3 weeks of fermentation with a very moderate intervention.
20% new barrels are used for an aging period of 18 months.
Varietals
Pinot Noir : 100%

Advice

Tasting notes
This soil, which contains a good proportion of limestone, always offers us wines with a good freshness. The nose is expressive with aromas of fresh red fruits and leather. The palate is balanced with a nice length and a touch of cocoa.
