Vintage 2020

Cask sample. Surprisingly broad and ripe on the palate for an Hautes-Côtes. Just a little one-dimensional although there is an interesting mineral finish. 15.5 Ripe apricot fruit on the generous aroma.

2013 is once again a vintage responsible for seriously stressing the winegrowers in Burgundy. We had a bad fight against mildew and oidium on our hands, in view to bring healthy grapes to the winery.
