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.


Vintage
The 2015 warm summer saw early flowering, with rapid development. Ripening was
slowed due to hot July temperatures, but rain at the end of the month eased
drought pressures. A cooler August allowed ripening to advance. Fine weather
during the harvest resulted in superb quality fruit with excellent phenolic ripeness.


Vineyard
Gevrey-Chambertin is the largest wine-producing village in Burgundy’s Côte d'Or. It is
located in the far north of the Côtes de Nuits. The grapes for this cuvée come from
the single vineyard ‘Creux Brouillard’, which translates as Hollow Fog in English. It is
situated at the bottom of the slope where the deep limestone and clay soils are
relatively cool and it is one of the last vineyards to be harvested in the village. The
style from this vineyard tends to be lighter and fresher. Pierre believes in respecting
the terroir; he ensures the yields are kept low and follows organic and biodynamic
principles, taking into consideration the cycles of the moon and the sun.


Winemaking
Vinified in a gravity-fed winery, this cuvée was made with the minimal amount of
intervention. The perfectly ripe and healthy grapes were hand-harvested and
manually sorted. The whole bunches were gently pulled into the fermenters without
the use of a pump. Fermentation started naturally with a cold soak, using indigenous
yeasts from the vineyard. During fermentation, several "pigeages" or cap
submersions took place. Skin contact maceration followed, lasting for a couple of
days, before the wine was racked by gravity into barrels. Matured for 12 months in
French oak barrels in the 17th century cellar. The wine was not fined or filtered prior
to bottling, to preserve the natural qualities of the wine.
