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
The 2017 vintage in Burgundy enjoyed favourable weather conditions throughout the
growing period. The season was marked by an alternation of warm and sunny days,
with rainy and overcast days, which allowed the grapes to ripen gradually. The
harvest produced homogeneous results with good quality berries and wonderful
balance between sugar and acidity. The 2017 is a very good vintage with wonderful
expression.


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.
