The opinion of the sommelier

The appellation Hautes Côtes de Beaune is famous for its delicate red wines. This vintage is not an exception: a bright, shiny, cherry-red colour, and candied redcurrant and strawberry aromas, enhanced by spicy flavours ! On the palate, the wine is subtle, carried by a generous silky texture. The signature of a nice Burgundy wine, as I love them ! 

 

Terroir

Between valleys and hills, this appellation overlooks the famous Côte de Beaune. The vines are planted on sloping soils which causes a good drainage ensuring that there will be no excess water in the berries that could damage the intensity of the wines. Moreover, the soil is made of limestone, which is a very filtering stone that gives some minerality to the wine.

lecepage Grape variety

Pinot noir is a fragile grape variety but it has one great strength : it tells a lot about the terroir it grew on. Here, the good level of ripeness shows that the vines benefited from a Southern exposure when the remarkable freshness let us feel that the Hautes-Cotes-de-Beaune are located mainly on windy hilltops.

lemillesime Vintage

Everything went very quickly in 2015 ! The very early flowering in June and the ripening process began in mid-July and the harvest began the first days of September. It’s something quite uncommon in Burgundy, which has a terroir colder than vineyards in the South of France. 2015 is a vintage that is both sunny and generous. The red wines are very aromatic !
