Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Nuits
Some vineyards have the power to attract by their appearance alone, and it is evident that the Hautes-Côtes fall into this category…
This appellation is unique as it is considered to be a regional appellation, though it is limited to a restricted area. The vineyards run parallel to those of the Côte de Nuits (to the west), but are higher in altitude. The soil is composed of limestone outcrops that Chardonnay thrives in and that lend character and lovely freshness to the wine. Only 120 hectares are planted with Chardonnay.
The vineyard is certified organic.
