Thevenot le Brun & Fils Hautes Cotes de Nuits Blanc 2019
Varietal: 60% Pinot Blanc, 40% Chardonnay
Pinot Blanc, a very aromatic grape, gives pronounced floral and fruity notes to this wine while the Chardonnay brings a touch of finesse. The 20% of the final cuvée that was oak aged contributes great texture and complexity to the final wine.
Domaine is located in Marey-lès-Fussey, in the high-lying area of Nuits-Saint-Georges. The vineyards extend over 3 appellations: Hautes Côtes de Nuits, Hautes Côtes de Beaune and Bourgogne Aligoté.
