Domaine Bertagna, Hautes-Côtes de Nuits "Les Dames Huguettes" Vielles-Vignes 1996
A basic appellation wine, but everything about the packaging says it's a serious concern. The wine is bright ruby, and of medium density. On the nose there's some cassis and sweet oak, with raspberry fruit coming through. More raspberry on the palate, a light mouthfeel, and an overall "bright" quality. There are quite firm tannins too that suggest a year or two in bottle might just bring more depth and roundness to the wine. (06/98)
