Domaine Yves BAZIN Villars-Fontaine
  Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits Rouge grown in Oak Barrels
Appelation: Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits AOC
Grape Variety: 100% Pinot Noir
Surface and Age of Vines:5 hectares 39 ares in all; and for this wine only our vines between 15 to 20 years of age are used.
Harvest: Hand-picked grapes
Wine-growing: After going through the sorting-table, the grapes are de-stemmed so that only the juice, pulp, skin and peeps are retained. Then they remain in wine-growing vats for one to two weeks with daily pressings and lifts.
Maturing: At the end of this maceration, the wine is racked, pressed and placed into oak barrels for a year, so as to keep fruit flavours.
Laying down: To be fit to be drunk, a Burgundy wine must be at least 4 years old. It may be kept for 6 to 8 years.
Wine and food pairing: When young and fruity, it will go with white meats. When older, with red meats, or meats in gravy, as well as cheese.
Service Temperature: 13° to 16° C., to be opened a little in advance.
Wine Description: Young, it will give spicy, fruity notes (blackcurrant, raspberry, Morello cherry) with a clear red colour - growing older, it will become slightly more orange, with undertones of undergrowth, liquorice and leather.
