If you tasted me blind and told me this was a villages Nuits or Vosne, I’d go along with that. This incredibly fine and detailed Pinot starts out with aromas of blackcherries and boysenberry, then follows with a classic Burgundian “hard candy” palate of identical flavors. What it doesn’t do is turn broad, coarse and balsamic in the way so many Hautes Côtes reds do. Sensational.
