Michel Gros Hautes-Côtes de Nuits rouge 2015


The Gros Hautes Côtes de Nuits comes from the hills to the west of Michel’s famous plots in the Côte de Nuits. In a regular vintage this wine punches above its weight, with a complexity and refinement you’d expect from a $50 red Burgundy. In 2015, it’s not to be missed.

The nose is is ripe, toasty, and elegant. Look for notes of violets and earth, and a surprisingly polished and long mouthfeel. We found plum, raspberry, cloves, and spice. We expect Michel’s the rest of 2015s to drink well for decades to come. But this one is a treat already. For a Burgundy lover, this is about as good a wine as $35 will ever buy.
