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, while 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 ‘Meix Bas’, which is made up of crinoidal limestone and sandy marls;
effective bedding for Pinot Noir. The lieu-dit of Meix Bas is just 50 metres away from the
Premier Cru vineyards of Gevrey Chambertin. 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 handharvested at optimal maturity.
Winemaking
Pierre’s philosophy is to make wines as naturally as possible, without additions, creating
balanced wines from the outset. Vinified in a gravity-fed winery, this cuvée was made
without any additional sulphur. The perfectly ripe and healthy grapes were handharvested and manually sorted. 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 10
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.
