Hudelot Baillet Bourgogne Hautes Cotes de Nuits 2017
The estate is practicing the "lutte raisonnée" and putting an emphasis on the work in the vineyards. For the élevage, the percentage of oak use is 1/3 new.
This Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits Blanc possesses a vivacious bouquet that is more complex than the Bourgogne Blanc with lovely peachy/apricot scents. The palate has slightly more sharpness and tension than the Bourgogne Blanc with very fine length. Fresh sweet grapefruit and floral notes are joined by ripe pithy flavours; this is mouthfilling and rich but perfectly balanced by the pointed juicy acidity.
