Hautes Côtes de Nuits Rouge 2007, Gros Frère et Soeur
The 2007 vintage lacked sunshine resulting in pinots that struggled to fully ripen. In cloudy years it is usually the pinots from the Côte de Nuits and from the higher altitude vineyards that suffer the most unless they have a good southerly exposition. This explains the fresh, high-toned, sharp raspberry, red currant, hawthorn leaf and loganberry aromas and flavours of this wine made from pinot grapes grown on the hills above Vosne. Drinkable but erring on green.
