2019 Hautes-Côtes de Nuits, Fontaine St Martin, Domaine Michel Gros

This large 7 hectare vineyard in the hills above Nuits-St-Georges has wonderful limestone soils, quite similar to those found on the hill of Corton, though with a much fresher climate, of course. It is wild and fresh, with a hedgerow fruit aroma and a long, and ripe finish. This has done particularly well in 2019.

TASTING NOTES

The 2019 Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Nuits Rouge Fontaine St Martin is rather laconic on the nose despite coaxing. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, and quite compact, leading to a slightly attenuated but fresh finish.
