Gros Hautes-Côtes Fontaine-St-Martin rouge 2020
At the Domaine Michel Gros, 2020 brings another stellar lineup of beautiful red Burgundies, very much in the style of the superb 2019s. The 2020 growing season in the Côte de Nuits was much like 2019: hot, sunny, dry, and very early.
“Fontaine St. Martin” is a monopole (wholly owned by the Domaine Michel Gros) that lies on the same soils as the famous Hill of Corton a few miles to the south. This wine always needs a bit more time than the others from the Hautes Côtes to show its best, but patience is rewarded with more complexity. Burghound found “notes of plum, cassis and soft earth suggestions,” along with more minerality and “nicely vibrant middle weight flavors.” As this wine matures, it often resembles a village wine from the Côte d’Or proper.
