The Story: Domaine Louis Fleurot in Nuits Saint Georges produces 12 appellations from their 16 hectares of vines. Originally their main business was cooperage, or barrel-making, but over time the wine business grew. We’re lucky that there are estates like this that still produce the so-called ‘lesser’ appellations like the Hautes Cotes de Nuits. These are the wines you will find on vignerons’ tables up and down the Côte d’Or.Why You'll Love Me: Red fruit (cherry, raspberry) and floral notes (violet) on the nose, as well as expressive hints of blackberry. Silky tannins combine with an elegant structure to make this a very approachable Burgundy.
