A deep red, wild cherry nose with freshly-turned earth, allspice berries and black tea moves to a strong red berry/cherry flavor with savory spice and soil support. Good structure, fine and firm tannins, bright/bold fruit and a definitive character of Burgundy make this a screaming-good value in this category. Buy this while you can and enjoy it as your weekend-at-home Red Burg over the next 5 years.
Gavignet is a winery/winemaker in Nuits Saint Georges making a handful of Premier Cru and Villages level NSGs. This Hautes Cotes de Nuits comes from a vineyard overlooking the village. Mature vines (20 to 50 years old) growing in clay/limestone. Wines such as this really show their quality and value in excellent vintages like 2015.
