Bright cherry, blackberry and plum flavors are allied to a vibrant structure in this red. Spice, earth and smoke accents chime in, while dusty tannins line the finish. Fine balance and length overall. Drink now through 2027. 1,100 cases made, 140 cases imported.
The 2019 Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Nuits Rouge Fontaine St Martin is rather laconic on the nose despite coaxing. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, and quite compact, leading to a slightly attenuated but fresh finish.
