Producer Note
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.
Vineyard
The Guyot trained vines are planted at a high density with 3,500 vines per hectare.
The vineyards are managed using organic fertilisers and without the use of
herbicides or insecticides. Plouging, pruning and green harvests all take place. The
vineyard soils are made up of clay and limestone with large chalky pebbles.
Winemaking
The manual harvest was followed by careful, manual sorting of the grapes. The
vinification was fed by gravity, without the use of pumps. A cold maceration, which
lasted for six to seven days, was then followed by a natural fermentation with
indigenous yeasts from the grapes and lasted 10 to 15 days. The wine was aged 'sur
lies' for 14 months in oak, of which 10% was new). The wine was unfined and
unfiltered, prior to bottling.
Tasting Note
Alluring raspberry and cherry with notes of dried fruits on the nose. Medium to full
bodied with a little earthiness, this well structured wine shows balanced oak, with fine
ripe tannins. Silky and smooth on the palate this is classically elegant.
Serving Suggestion
A great match with grilled meats, white meats in a delicate sauce and fresh
cheeses.
