From the opposite side of the narrow valley which leads into the hills above Nantoux, at slightly lower altitude (377 metres), this is Boris’s other, superb red wine plot in the Hautes Côtes, known as “Le Clou”. The soil here is whiter, with high marlstone content, and plentiful pebbles. The grapes were hand-picked, then 70% whole clusters were added to the fermentation vat, to bring concentration and fresh spiciness. The wine has been ageing in small, 228-litre oak barrels. Colour is purple of medium depth, aromas are intense and rich. Palate shows a vivacious core of dense fruitiness, with velvety texture and harmonious aftertaste (for drinking 2023-2026+).
