Michel Gros Hautes-Côtes de Nuits 2018

$34

Gros’s 2018s from the Hautes-Côtes are magnificent, often resembling village wines from the Côte d’Or in their depth and completeness. The nose opens immediately with plums, toast, violets, and briary dark cassis fruits. The mouth is smooth and full, with inky, palate-coating texture laid over a subtle foundation of velvety tannins.

Vinous’s Neal Martin praised the “floral bouquet of sensual red cherries,” calling it a “finely crafted Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes.” Bill Nanson found “a lovely open, energetic character,” concluding “simply excellent wine.” It’s a tremendous value under $35 — serve it to a pinotfile, and they’ll guess you paid quite a bit more.
