The 2020 Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune “Clous 377” (again, note the small name change) is matured in regular Burgundy barrels that are one-year old. You have to spend a little time with this wine to watch it unfurl in the glass: pure redcurrant, cranberry and raspberry scents, quintessential Pinot Noire. The palate is slightly granular in texture on the entry, very saline and lightly spiced, good intensity on the finish with a tingle of white pepper on the aftertaste. Excellent.
Anticipated maturity: 2024-2036
