Domaine Gerbet AC Bourgogne Haut Cotes de Nuit 2008 75cl
Made from old vines (averaging 55 years) from the slopes just outside Vosne-Romanée on the west side. Generally a lot less expensive than those made further down the slope. Noted for value. Soft, elegant, ripe, supple, rich wine with a flavoursome finish. Easy to drink, fragrant, with spicy, mineral, earthy flavours reminiscent of raspberries and cherries.
This wine has twice been ‘Wine of the Week’ in the Irish Times … “a classic example of what the Burgundians call “the iron fist in the velvet glove”.
Food match ...
Delightful to drink on its own. Otherwise, try with salad (without vinegar dressing), chicken, veal, game or goats cheese.
