I have a stash of these at my mom’s place that I bought on whim a few years ago. I pull one most times I’m in town. It’s good for what it is and perhaps speaks to the qualities of the vintage.
2005 Domaine Robert Jayer-Gilles Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Nuits - France, Burgundy, Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Nuits (7/8/2017)
My 4th of 6 bottles. A good bit of oak and damp earth scents. It’s dark-fruited, slightly sweet with a rich appealing texture. There’s decent acidity to keep the wine interesting and it doesn’t fall to flabby. It leans dark, with some toast, but I don’t dislike it. Still has a good bit of life left it seems. Good for what it is.
