The Côte de Nuits is the northern half of Burgundy’s famous Côte d’Or. This narrow 15-mile strip of land is home to nearly all of Burgundy’s greatest red wine vineyards. Wine has been made on this hallowed slope for over a thousand years, and today it produces the world’s finest expression of Pinot Noir.
Each town in the Côte de Nuits has its own identity. As the terroir shifts from village to village, the character of wine shifts as well. We’ve put together a mixed case of four wines from four villages and four different winemakers. This sampler displays both the remarkable diversity and unmatched brilliance of the wines from this famous stretch of earth.
GROS Chambolle-Musigny 2014
Michel Gros’s Chambolle-Musigny may be the silkiest wine in his lineup. Made mostly from a plot bordering the famous “Le Musigny” vineyard, this is unusually dense and rich for a village-level Chambolle.
AMIOT Morey-St-Denis 2014
Morey-St-Denis is the Domaine Amiot’s home turf — their Domaine sits on the main street of the town. Amiot’s village-level Morey-St-Denis is ripe and delicious, showing lace-like minerality behind juicy raspberry and currant fruits.
BOURÉE Gevrey-Chambertin “Justice” 2011
Grown in an old-school style (whole clusters, long maceration), Bourée’s “Clos de la Justice” is classic, meaty Gevrey-Chambertin. Look for stewed fruits, dried cranberries, cloves, and baked apple in the nose, and a smooth, tense palate.
ARLOT Nuits-St-Georges 1er cru 2013
The monopole “Clos des Forets-St-Georges” is Arlot’s flagship vineyard, turning out rich, beefy wines every year. The 2013 is no exception, showing dark cherry jam, smoke, and minerals; the mouth is lively and long.
