BourgogneHautes-Côtes de Beaune
The grapes producing the Hautes-Côtes de Beaune are grown on the "Les Vallerots" plot in the commune of Magny-lès-Villers.
Silty clay and extensive deposits of limestone
70% Chardonnay (average age 55 years), Guyot trained // 30% Pinot Blanc (average age 55 years), Guyot trained
10 000 vines / hectare on low trellising
Harvested by hand and at maturity, the grapes are then sorted and slowly pressed into whole bunches. The grape must is then cold-settled and sung so that the fermentations take place in barrels.
50 to 70% in new 350L barrels only, 30 to 50% in sandstone vats over a period of 15 months followed by 6 months in vats. No fining, only one racking and light filtration before bottling.
Average 4 000 bottles per annum
75cl bottles. For larger sizes contact the Domaine at the beginning of the year.
Bright, clear gold
Hint of nuts, with notes of bee's wax after several years in bottle
Round, fulsome and generous on the middle palate, with weight and attractive mouth-feel. Ripeness and fine acidity on the finish.
For best tasting results serve in Burgundy glasses.
Food and wine pairing
Delicious with vegetable starters, summer salads and raw fish carpaccio.
