The Berthaut-Gerbet Bourgogne Rouge Hautes Cotes de Nuits 2015 got our attention immediately by virtue of its insistent fruit, purity, and very fresh flavors. Cherry, mulberry, a little spice and damp earth, all the things you expect from good Burgundy. Undeniable elegance, this is from the higher elevations (haut cotes) and came from a 1.6 hectare plot of 45 year old vines. The juice in the bottle definitely reaches to a higher level than the appellation might lead you to believe, and thus under $30 price tag for something that tastes like ‘real Burgundy’ was darned appealing.
