- Tasting Notes
Here too there is a deft touch of wood surrounding the earthier and more sauvage-inflected aromas of black cherry and raspberry. The fleshy and delicious medium-bodied flavors possess a relatively refined mouthfeel thanks to the fine grained tannins shaping the sneaky long finale. Lovely.

Aromas of smoky cassis, plum and espresso roast introduce the 2017 Côte de Nuits-Villages, a medium-bodied wine with a sappy core of fruit, chalky tannins and nice length on the finish. As usual, this hails from the Queue de Hareng lieu-dit in Brochon, a site that would surely have won the communal appellation had it been located in Gevrey-Chambertin.

The 2017 Côtes de Nuits Village, which comes from vines located around Brochon, sees around 20% new oak. It has a very pure and generous bouquet with dark cherries, hints of boysenberry and light violet scents. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannin, perfect acidity, silky smooth in texture with a long and tender, pure finish. Simply, Côte de Nuits does not get better than this.
