About Hautes Cotes de Nuits 2017 Les Renardes, Domaine Thevenot-Le Brun

Here's a remarkable find, affordable red Burgundy from the heart of the region. Hautes Cotes de Nuit is an under-the-radar appellation whose vineyards are high on the slopes above the Premier and Grand Crus of Nuits St' Georges, Vosne Romanee and others.  Nicolas Thevenot is the younger generation at the Domaine Thevenot- Le Brun, an estate that has extensive vineyard holdings in Hautes Cotes de Nuits and as Decanter Magazine noted "He is convinced that the quality levels have never been higher in the Hautes Cotes"

This wine comes from their Les Renardes vineyard, a 6 acre parcel in the heart of the Hautes Cotes de Nuits region. The slope is steep with a south-west, south orientation. The top-soil is very thin so the mature vines, planted in 1983, have very deep roots. The grapes are fermented with natural yeasts and macerated 15-20 days. It's aged in oak for 12 months.

2017 was a very fine vintage that many growers are comparing the outstanding 2002 and this single vineyard Pinot Noir, although leaner and racier than the wines from lower down on the slope, it still shows beautiful cherry and strawberry with herbal hints on the nose and a lovely roundness on the palate with caressing tannins and ripe fruit to balance the mouthwatering acidity.

Until the prices start to catch up to the quality, this is your best opportunity to enjoy red Burgundy with distinct character and complexity that's completely affordable!
