Domaine Gachot-Monot Cotes de Nuits Villages 2011
"I have to admire the little town of Corgoloin in the Cote de Nuits, so proud of its terroir and the source of marble for France's best sculptors. It refused to be lumped in with Nuits-St. Georges and remained CdN-Villages. When I tasted Gachot's wine this winter I could see why. Sure he makes fine
