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.

Domaine Michel Gros

Best known for his monopole Clos des Réas, a vineyard that produces a wine of supreme elegance, this remarkable plot has been in the family since 1860. Michel Gros has been at the head of the family domaine that now bears his name since 1975. A rather more recent addition was his tiny parcel of Grand Cru Clos de Vougeot, bought by Michel’s father for his son’s twelfth birthday, although he’s adamant he would have preferred a bike!
