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.

The vineyard is situated in the appellation of the Haute Côtes de Nuits, which is located
on the higher slopes of the escarpment. The Guyot trained vines are carefully and
sustainably managed throughout the year. Only organic fertilisers are employed; no
herbicides or insecticides are used in the vineyards. Ploughing takes place to control
weeds and specific attention is paid to controlling yields. Meticulous pruning, shoot and
bunch thinning, and a green harvest take place in order to concentrate the flavours in
the berries. It is considered optimal for the vines to carry just five to six bunches prior to
harvest. The soils are made up of clay and limestone, with large chalky pebbles, which
produce elegant wines. The harvest takes place manually using flat bins, with each
case containing one layer of grapes to avoid crushing. The vineyard is currently in
conversion to organic status.
A thorough selection process took place to ensure only healthy fruit was vinified. Cold
maceration took place for six to seven days, followed by natural fermentation with
indigenous yeasts from the grapes, lasting 10 to 15 days. Daily remontage, or pumping
over, took place during fermentation to oxygenate the must and a light pigeage
(punching down of the cap), ensured the desired level of extraction. Ageing took
place on the fine lees for 14 months in French oak, of which 10% was new. The wine
was vinified in a gravity-fed winery without the use of pumps and was not fined or
filtered prior to bottling. Produced without added sulphur.
Tasting Note
Charming, characteristic raspberry aromas are layered with hints of spice, which lead
to a smooth palate of sweet Morello cherry and a touch of smokiness. Beautifully
structured, with balanced oak and an exquisite finish.
