Charming, characteristic raspberry fruit tones with hints
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.
The Guyot trained vines are carefully managed throughout the year. Only organic
fertilisers are used and no herbicides or insecticides are used in the vineyards.
Sustainable approaches are used with ploughing, meticulous pruning and a green
harvest to concentrate the berries. The soils are made up of clay and limestone, with
large chalky pebbles. The harvest takes place manually with manual sorting to select
only the healthy grapes.
The vinification in this winery is fed by gravity, without the use of pumps. A cold
maceration took place for six to seven days. This was followed by a natural
fermentation with indigenous yeasts from the grapes, which lasted 10 to 15 days.
Daily remontage, or pumping over, took place during fermentation to oxygenate the
must and a light pigeage or punching down of the cap, ensured the desired level of
extraction. Ageing took place on the fine lees or 'sur lie' for 14 months in oak (10%
new). The wine was unfined and unfiltered.
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.
A great match for grilled rabbit, chicken and duck dishes.
