Hautes-Côtes-de-Nuits 2005, Xavier Girardin
Aromas of sour cherry, red currant, hazelnut and walnut – very typical for the hautes cotes. Finishes on damp limestone. Fresh and delicate berry fruit, just ripe, perfumed. Just 12.5% and a good luncheon wine. Tasted at Au Petit Bonheur a lovely little restaurant in the Hautes Côtes de Nuits near Nuits-Saint-Georges.
