  • Charming, characteristic raspberry fruit tones with hints of spice leads to a smooth palate of sweet Morello cherry and a hint of smokiness. A well structured wine, with balanced oak and a long finish.

The vineyard is situated in the appellation of the Haute Cotes de Nuits, which is located on the higher slopes of the escarpment. The Guyot trained vines are carefully and sustainably managed throughout the year. Only organic fertilisers are employed; no herbicides or insecticides are used in the vineyards. Ploughing takes place to control weeds and specific attention is paid to controlling yields. Meticulous pruning, shoot and bunch thinning, and a green harvest take place in order to concentrate the flavours in the berries. It is considered optimal for the vines to carry just five to six bunches prior to harvest. The soils are made up of clay and limestone, with large chalky pebbles, which produce elegant wines. The harvest takes place manually using flat bins, with each case containing one layer of grapes to avoid crushing. The vineyard is currently in conversion to organic status.

Pierre Naigeon is a leading and renowned producer in the Côtes de Nuits. The Naigeon family has been established in Gevrey-Chambertin for over 150 years. They acquired some vines and started to produce wine in 1890. The estate remained
reasonably small until 2003 when Pierre purchased more land increasing their holdings to 11.5 hectares. Pierre Naigeon believes passionately in sustainable farming, without the use of herbicides. He believes in non-interventionist winemaking and aims to
produce wines full of fragrance, revealing the natural terroir. The average age of his vines is remarkably high, mostly over 50 years, which endows the wines with an extraordinary quality, maturity and concentration.
