and a stunning complexity of vibrancy, opulence and
elegance.
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 come from a tiny plot of just over a quarter of a hectare in the single
vineyard of 'Les Herbeux', which was planted over 50 years ago. The low-yielding vines
face the rising sun and are grown at the foot of the hillside on a very gentle slope. The
soils are a combination of very white limestone, which is typical of the southern part of
the Nuits-Saint-Georges, and imparts a mineral character; and deep clay, rich in iron
and the vines grown in this soil give structure, depth and spicy aromas to the wine. The
vines are cultivated organically without the use of herbicides or insecticides and the
vineyard will be certified organic from the 2019 vintage.
Winemaking
Pierre vinifies with minimal intervention. The grapes were fermented with natural yeast in
a gravity fed winery, without the use of pumps. The wine was aged in French oak
barrels for one year, of which 20% were new. Bottled without fining or filtration.
