Maison Petit-Roy Hautes-Côtes-de-Nuits Rouge 2021 750mL

Pinot Noir grown on clay, limestone and marl soils, at high altitude. 3 day cold soak and then 3-4 week whole bunch maceration. Aged in used barrels for 12 months, then left to settle in tank for 8 months. Not fined or filtered. Minimal SO2.

Very clean and polished nose. Sappy stems, tea leaves, plum, black cardamom, blackberry, black pepper and a hint of tamarind – the perfume is elegant, complex and ultimately lifted. Black roses and salt come later on. The palate is long and tailored, perfectly curated and suave. A beautiful mix of fruit and savoury notes, followed by fine integrated black-tea like tannins. Satiny with full, but linear mid palate. Long in the mouth. A beautiful wine.
