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 mild winter was followed by a mild spring. In 2015, a warm summer saw early
flowering, with rapid development. Grape ripening was slowed due to the hot July
temperatures, but rain at the end of the month eased drought pressures and a return
to normal temperatures in August allowed ripening to advance. Fine weather during
the September harvest saw superb quality fruit with excellent phenolic ripeness.
Vineyard
The 1er Cru vines are grown in a small parcel in the middle of the Gevrey Chambertin
appellation, by the hill of the ‘Combe de Lavaux’. It is a sunny plot with a south eastern
exposure which receives cooling breezes, which flow from the bottom of the valley. The
soil is complex, ranging from limestone from Dijon to decarbonated silt. The vineyard is
cultivated organically, without the use of herbicides and insecticides and will be
certified 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 50% were new. Bottled without fining or filtration.
Tasting Note
A wine of great complexity, finesse and power that brings notes of black cherry and
blackberry to the fore with delicate mineral undertones. Silky, with supple tannins and
wonderful freshness.
