2018 Domaine François Lamarche Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Nuits

SKU #1476538 91 points Decanter

Outer quote mark The Hautes Côtes are increasingly coming into their own in hotter, drier Burgundian vintages. This pale, delicate, refreshing Pinot Noir comes from a 1.53-hectare parcel close to Vosne-Romanée at 380 metres of altitude and has impressive freshness and lift, despite being picked last. Spice and tobacco notes from 30% whole bunches add extra complexity. Drinking Window 2021 - 2026. (TA) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark *Burghound Outstanding Value!!* A slightly more elegant and very pretty array of ripe yet cool red pinot and currant aromas introduce nicely detailed flavors that possess a finer mouthfeel while exhibiting a refreshing touch of salinity on the more complex finale. This is a lovely example of the genre from the Hauts Côtes and worth checking out. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits comes from 1.53 hectares of vine. It is more backward and a little more sultry than the Bourgogne Rouge at this stage. The palate is more generous, offering good body, plenty of tart red cherries and strawberry and touches of orange peel toward the finish. It might need six months in bottle just to cohere a little, but should drink nicely for up to three years. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

K&L Notes

Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Lively cherry pink colour. The bouquet is leaner than for the regular Bourgogne, but the fruit packs a little more punch behind. Ripe redcurrant and fresh cherry aromatics, with enough weight of fruit through to the back."
