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
A wet winter and spring built soil water reserves which was important for the
forthcoming growing season. A cold snap in February allowed the vines to rest and the
sap to descend. Warm weather in April increased the vine's development, which
continued throughout the hot, dry growing season. Harvest took place under good
conditions producing exceptionally healthy fruit. 2018 is an excellent vintage for both
quantity and quality.
Vineyard
The grapes are grown in ‘Les Maladières’, a single vineyard site close to Chambolle
Musigny, and the resulting wine echoes its more famous neighbour’s style of intense yet
delicate, elegant wines. The soils are Bresse marl, covered with sandy alluvial layers.
The continental climate has cold winters and warm summers, with cool nights, allowing
the vines to produce balanced fruit with natural freshness. The vines are in conversion
to organic status; weeds are controlled by cultivating the soil and chemical herbicides
are not used. Only organic and natural products are employed to protect the vines
against insects. The grapes are hand-harvested at optimal maturity.
Winemaking
Pierre’s philosophy is to make wines as naturally as possible, without additions, creating
balanced wines from the outset. Vinification takes place in a gravity-fed winery without
the use of pumps. Fermentation took place with indigenous yeasts present on the
grape skins and the grapes were macerated to ensure the desired level of extraction of
flavour, colour and fine, supple tannins. 100% was matured in French oak barriques,
20% of which were new, for 10 months. The wine was bottled without fining or filtration
and was produced without the addition of sulphur to preserve the natural qualities of
the wine.
