2016 Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Nuits `Maëlie`
- Wine colour
- France > Burgundy > Côte de Nuits
- Domaine Jean Tardy & Fils
This is named after Guillaume`s daughter and comes from vines up on the plateau above Vosne in the village of Conur. It`s a great start to the range showing high class tannins for the appellation of sweet, silky red fruits with a touch of spice.
`The 2016 Bourgogne Hautes Cotes de Nuits Cuvee Maelie Rouge, which had a little SO2 added a couple of weeks before my visit, offers blackberry and dark plum scents on the nose, forward and quite precocious for this genre of Burgundy. The palate is fleshy with plenty of rondeur, perhaps slightly higher in pH compared to other Hautes Côtes that I encountered during my travels, but quite sensual and generous with black cherries and blackcurrant on the finish.` 85-87 points, Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate.
