Domaine Yves BAZIN Villars-Fontaine
  Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits Rouge, grown in New Barrels
Appelation: Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits AOC
Grape Variety: 100% Pinot Noir
Surface and Age of Vines: 1 ha 32 ares for this wine-growing - we always use the same vine parcel, the best exposed one, aged between 25 and 30 years, with a richer soil and small yields.
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 for 60% into new barrels and 40% in two-wine barrels, for a length of two years, so as to obtain more marked tannins. After which it is stored in bottles for two years before it is sold.
Laying down: May be kept for 10 to 15 years.
Wine and food pairing: It will go with red meats in gravy, as well as game or cheeses of character, such as Epoisses or Langres.
Service Temperature: 13° to 16° C., to be opened a little in advance.
Wine Description: When it is young, it will give out spicy, fruity notes (of blackberry, raspberry, Morello cherry) but also very tannic tones, with a colour going from clear red to black . As it grows older, it will become slightly more orange, with flavours of undergrowth, humus, liquorice and leather.
