Mandarin orange juice and crushed quince show on the delicious, gorgeously intense nose of "Côte," one of Vergisson's nobler high-altitude vineyards that clings to the western side of the rock. This has the stuffing of a grand cru—miles of deep, plush and saturated flavors, ripe peaches, pears and poached apples. Vibrant and tremendously long; undoubtedly one of our favorites.
"Bright gold. Kaleidoscopic bouquet offers ripe tangerine, nectarine, yellow plum, baking spices, vanilla bean and smoky truffle. Deep, concentrated and palate-enrobing, with sappy orchard and pit fruit, toasted grain and clove flavors. Offers the power of a top-notch Meursault and finishes with superb clarity and persistence. You could very easily spend twice as much for a wine from the Cote d'Or and get half the wine. Pretty remarkable."
