A rare opportunity to taste a Grand Cru Pinot Noir after years of aging — without the wait! Hautes Mourottes comes from the limestone of Corton Hill’s upper eastern slopes. Aging makes it rich and vibrant, complex and ever-changing on the palate. This vintage and 2003 are ready to drink now. Note: older vintages can be fragile. See our recommendations for how to open and serve older wines.

  • A reddish bronze tint reveals this wine’s age, but it still has plenty of life. A deep, rich nose suggests ripe black cherries, clove, and cassis. After the wine has had time to breathe, it begins to reveal even more spice and fruit. Drinking beautifully now but likely to remain attractive through at least 2017.
