Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Nuits "Les Dames Huguettes"

Domain Wines / Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Nuits "Les Dames Huguettes"

In more than 20 years Jean-Luc and Paul, father and sons, established an estate divided over several flagship appellations from Burgundy. Each year some 20,000 bottles of vin du domaine are produced from the seven hectares of owned vines. This vineyard is pampered all year round with an average yield of only 35 hectolitres per hectare. After harvesting and carefully sorting the grapes, the grape juice is turned into wine with care and attention and then the wine is aged in oak barrels for a minimum of 12 months.

The result of this work of excellence is that today they are creating "Les Vins du Domaine" with a new, fashionable, modern look.

  • Tasting notes

    A robe with garnet nuances and slightly ruby pink reflections. On the nose, a gourmet aromatic palette emerges, a real basket of red and black fruits. Delicate floral notes accompanied by white pepper bring it a touch of character. In the mouth it is round, supple, a slight freshness brings a remarkable balance, a finish with sustained but fine tannins.

  • Food pairing

    Try gourmet dishes like a pretty Bigorre pork chop with a slightly peppery full-bodied juice or a nice pink duck aiguillette and a full-bodied juice with a few raspberries.
