Most of the fruit comes from the Côte de Nuits, with the majority from around Nuits itself, with the balance from the Côte de Beaune. 20% whole bunch and no new oak is the perfect combination here to let the fruit sing. It is a fresh and crunchy style of bourgogne, with enough bite to give it a vibrant length. It should drink well from a young age. And it’s an absolute bargain.
The 2020 Bourgogne Côte d’Or is 60% Côte de Nuits and 40% Côte de Beaune. Soft dark cherry and cola scents unfurl on the nose, just a slight reduction here. The palate is sweet and chewy on the entry, good substance, the 20% whole bunch imparting a light pepperiness on the finish. This should drink well for two or three years.
