After a terrible 2021 vintage, Dandélion only managed to produce a tiny quantity of bottles, 2022 has given them renewed hope. After discovering the new Rosie Red cuvée, which we presented to you in September, it's now time for the grand return of the estate's original cuvée: Hautes Côtes Nature.
Christian Knott, the former cellar master at Domaine Chandon de Briailles now holds a domaine of just under 2 hectares in Mavilly-Mandelot, he impressed us with his mastery and high-precision natural vinifications. Christian, former cellar master at Domaine Chandon de Briailles.
The wines are made from whole bunches, with a vatting period of around twenty days, a passage under the old wooden press, ageing in old barrels and a minimum of intervention: no pumps, no synthetic products. Consistent with their principles in the vineyard, Christian uses no sulfur, so he can proudly display the term "nature" on their magnificent labels, made in Auvergne in a paper mill dating back to the 15th century. They are made from cotton, linen and hemp fibers. The little flowers embedded in the paper (cornflowers, calendula, grasses, ferns, etc.) are grown on site, then the labels are cut and glued by hand.
Hautes Côtes de Beaune 2022 is shaping up beautifully. It's a great Burgundian pinot noir, a delicate, deep wine, full of energy and with an evolutionary potential that makes you wonder. In fact, having recently tasted the 2019, its evolution in just a few years is spectacular. We would therefore strongly advise you not to drink these wines too quickly.
