Les Hauts des Coteaux is a wine issued from 60 years old vines located in our best hillsides with low yields (less than 30hl per hectare) to
obtain maximum concentration. As the crop has been sorted out and picked
at high maturity, the wine has a complex structure. Aged in barrels, it
enhances aromas of vanilla, tasted notes and liquorice. The tannins are very
smooth and silky and the long finish is spicy and elegant.
To enjoy from now or can be kept from 6 to 10 years. Serve at 15°-17°C
It will match perfectly all kind of meat with sauce such as beef bourguignon, filets of venison with cranberry sauce, or refined cheeses.
