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

A great lover of Burgundy, Jean-Luc AEGERTER acquired a small wine house in Nuits-Saint-Georges in 1988, with the ambition of participating in the revelation of the great terroirs of Burgundy.
In 1994, he bought the first vines of the Domaine, 1,17ha in one piece on the climat "Les Plateaux" in Nuits-Saint-Georges.
Through hard work, determination and passion, Jean-Luc and his son Paul, have built a Domain anchored in the mythical lands of Burgundy and radiating throughout the world.
Today, Paul AEGERTER is the sole manager of the family estate, and he vinifies and raises nearly 50 hectares of which 14 hectares are owned, covering most of the Burgundian appellations.

  • 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.
