The Dominique Guyon Hautes Cotes de Nuits vineyards are located on south facing slopes in Meuilley, in the hills above Nuits-Saint- George, an area well-known for the quality of its wines. The soils here are limestone, rock with some clay. Grapes are hand-harvested and then carried in small boxes to the cellars, where they are sorted. Fermentation takes places for 10 days in open wooden vats, at a controlled temperature and with punching down. Wines are aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.TASTING NOTES
Ruby red, with purple tints, is full of aromas of fresh fruit. Elegant, delicious and well-crafted with a creamy texture, this wine is ready for drinking now or can be kept for up to five years. Ideal with red meats, roasted meats and most cheeses.
