What is an Hautes-Côtes wine?
The appellation Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune produces a fresh wine, accessible at an excellent price/quality ratio, which easily opens so you can spend a good time with friends. Aromas of red fruits for red wines, a very aromatic nose of white flowers for white wines. If you keep these wines for a few years, the mouth becomes rounder with notes of honey and nuts.
Why the Hautes-Côtes?
The Hautes-Côtes de Beaune is the natural extension of the Côte de Beaune.
The vineyards occupy the most exposed slopes of the valleys perpendicular to the Côte de Beaune, towards the west. The Hautes Côtes are hills of 150 to 400 metres in altitude. The recognition of the AOC “Hautes-Côtes” on 4 August , 1961 changed everything here. It was the fruit of the work of teacher Etienne Kayser, who was a lover of vines and wines and a collective of winemakers described as a “very dynamic group defined by perfect understanding”, men and women who never gave up, convinced of having a quality terroir. Judge it for yourself!
