From the good 2012 and scoring 85-7/100 Parker Points, “The 2012 Bourgogne Hautes Cotes de Nuits Rouge benefitted from the clement late weather and was picked between the 5 and 10 October. It sports a healthy deep ruby color. The nose is fragrant and nicely poised with cranberry and blackcurrant aromas that seem quite intense at this stage. The palate is a little tough on the entry. This is underpinned by bold and quite firm tannins, the fruit pushed down into second place after the structure on the finish, but that will surface with time. It is a question of whether consumers will afford this 18-24 months bottle age hopefully they will.” Drink now – 2021.
