Winery Description

A New World-style winery at the heart of Hautes-Côtes de Nuits: a tremendous gamble taken by two childhood friends to create a place that is as much about passion as it is about high standards.

With charming landscapes with wood-covered hillsides, well-exposed vineyards, and bucolic pastures, the Hautes-Côtes are located in the hills overlooking the Côte de Nuits, south of Dijon. At an altitude of between 300 and 400 metres, the landscape is hilly, with a harsh climate (hot, dry summers, cold winters), which explains the courage and solidarity of its inhabitants.

Vines have been cultivated here for centuries. In the Middle Ages, Benedictine monks from the Abbey of Saint-Vivant grew the finest of wines here, undoubtedly taking advantage of the cool climate which favoured the delicate blossoming of this divine nectar.

Cool climate pinot at its finest
By Shunsuke Murasaki on 27 July 2015

Though sweet, the touch of acidity was enough to pair it with food. The combination of my cheese platter and the wine was very enjoyable.


Great find!
By Sean Lisa Suzuki on 27 July 2015

One of the best wines I've had in a while! Although it is very fruity, it was not too sweet for my taste. Would definitely have it again!
