Domaine Pierre Naigeon Creux Brouillard Gevrey Chambertin 2018

A savoury and robust expression of Gevrey Chambertin
made without the addition of sulphites and showing
chunky black cherry fruit with an opulent touch of prunes
and chocolate.
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
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 intervention and
without additional sulphur. 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 seven-day 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 11 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.
