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 vineyard is located in the Premier Cru named vineyard of 'Fontenys', in the
appellation of Geverey Chambertin. Situated between the village itself and the
Gevrey-Chambertin Grand Cru hill, the vineyard rises up the hillside and the vineyard
or 'climat' in French, covers just 3.5 hectares. It is here that the high quality of the
limestone soils, perfect for the Pinot Noir variety, has led to the classification of Premier
Cru, rather than just village wine.


Winemaking
The perfectly ripe and healthy grapes were hand harvested, with every bunch being
delicately picked into small bins. The grapes then underwent a meticulous manual
sorting, before the whole bunches were gently pulled into the fermenters without the
use of a pump. The fermentation started naturally with a cold soak, using indigenous
yeasts from the vineyard. During the fermentation process several "pigeages" or
"plunging down of the cap" took place. Maceration followed the fermentation with
skin contact for a couple of days, before being racked by gravity into barrels. The
wine was matured for 12 months in French oak barrels in the 17th Century cellar,
where the natural temperature is perfect for the wine throughout the year. No fining
or filtration took place to preserve the natural qualities of the wine. Bottled by hand,
by gravity.
