About the Wine:
The wine stylishly defends the appellation Côte de Nuits Villages. It has a serene ambition: to express the finesse of the Pinot Noir. It develops a dashing nose which ventilates the notes of morello cherries and fruit stones, often drifting towards cloves, sandalwood and sometimes cocoa. Alert and agile, the wine draws out the suppleness and elegance by affirming itself through a substance of red fruit flavours with touches of pepper and vanilla notes. Its character enables it to be tasted quite young, "on the fruit", but it may improve with age, up to 10 years or so.

The Terroir:
Located in the village of Comblanchien, this is a hat-shaped plot, which is where its name comes from. The vines cover a surface of 1.6 hectares on ground which is a mixture of clay and limestone, ideal for revealing the pleasures of the Pinot Noir.

- The pleasure of the Pinot Noir: this is a magical grape-variety, provided that it is respected. The domaine has chosen very fine Pinot, with small berries. Above all, it makes sure that yields are limited: to 35 hectoliters per hectare for the Clos du Chapeau. This is essential if the aromatic palette of the Pinot Noir is to develop.

- Gentle elevage: with 10 to 15 % of new barrels, the Clos du Chapeau never appears too oaky. The new oak is just a spice which brings out the best in the wine. It is bottled after being raised for 14 months.

- The appellation Côte de Nuits Villages concerns vines from five villages : Fixin, Brochon, Prémeaux, Comblanchien and Corgoloin. This vineyard area extends over 170 hectares.

Tasting Note:
The nose reveals notes of black fruit such as blackcurrant, typical of this appellation. The mid-palate is generous and very earthy, with robust tannins. This is a wine with great substance, complete and easily accessible.

Ratings & Reviews
"The 2018 Côte de Nuits Village Clos du Chapeau has an open-knit, generous bouquet of red cherries and crushed strawberry fruit, hints of crushed rose petal emerging with time. The medium-bodied palate offers fine tannin. Taut and crisp with a vivacious, tart red cherry finish and a lightly spicy aftertaste. Delicious. " Neal Martin - (Jan 2020)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
The 2018 Côte de Nuits-Villages Clos du Chapeau is very attractive, revealing aromas of red berries, cherries and rose petals that are framed by a deft touch of oak. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, velvety and charming, with supple tannins and an expressive core of fruit." - William Kelley (9th Jan 2020)

Allen Meadows' Burghound:
"Here the expressive nose is aromatically similar to that of the Hautes Côtes but with just a bit more layering. The sleek, very intense and beautifully well-detailed middle weight flavors are not quite as rich but finer, all wrapped in a serious, rustic and structured finish that leaves no doubt that this will need at least a few years of cellaring first." - (Jan 10, 2020)
