Hautes Côtes de Nuits. White
Producer: Domaine Cornu
Wine Style: White
Region: Burgundy, Côtes de Beaune
Désignation: Hautes Côtes de Nuits
Grape Variety: Chardonnay
Description: Pale to yellow gold in colour, notes of hawthorn and honeysuckle mingle with apple, lemon, white nettle and hazelnut. In the mouth, they are fleshy, solidly built, well-balanced, and with an easily-recognisable touch of friskiness which improves their ageing potential.
Its sprightly and harmonious personality is meant for the spread made from carp roe (tarama), steamed fish, and crustaceans. Its vivacious nature equips it to accompany the Burgundian specialties of ham with parsley (jambon persillé) and snails (escargots). Fully mature, the wine goes very well with the delicacy foie gras au sel. Cheeses: Roquefort, Aisy cendré, mature Comté, Chaource.
Serving temperature: 10 to 13°C.
