Hoffmann-Jayer owns 1.3 hectares of 60-year-old Pinot Noir in the village of Corgoloin, planted in three different lieux-dits: En Fontenelle, Le Clos de Magny, and La Montagne. This Côte de Nuits-Villages is aged entirely in 228-liter barrels, one-third of which are new, and Alexandre’s preference for low-toast wood allows the fruit to shine through beautifully. Juicy, kirsch-like red fruits ride on a ridge of gorgeously articulated, fresh tannins, and a looming but understated sense of structure implies a great deal of upside potential.
