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
2012 was a challenging vintage as erratic weather patterns resulted in a cold, wet
spring, which threatened vineyards with mildew and delayed flowering and ripening.
The summer followed with heatwaves which allowed the grapes to mature fully. The
harvest took place with reduced yields; however the quality of the berries was high,
with good maturity and balance.
Vineyard
Bonnes Mares is a Grand Cru vineyard in the Côtes de Nuits, which sits across the
communes of Morey Saint Denis in the north and Chambolle Musigny in the south. The
Pierre Naigeon plot covers half a hectare and is situated on the upper part of the hill
where the soil is clay and limestone with a significant presence of white marl. This
specific terroir produces refined and aromatic wines. The vines were replanted in 1993
and are pruned according to the Cordon Royat method; this suits quality production of
Pinot Noir as it reduces the vigour of the vine and encourages concentrated berries.
The vineyard is managed traditionally, with ploughing and green harvesting taking
place. Only organic fertilisers are used; herbicides and insecticides are not used to
cultivate the vines. The grapes are hand-harvested with meticulous selection in the
vineyard.
Winemaking
The must underwent a cold maceration for one week, prior to fermentation which
lasted 19 days. Hand plunging and pumping-over took place during fermentation to
extract the desired levels of colour, flavour, tannins and to impart structure to the wine.
A post fermentation maceration on the skins lasted nine days. The wine was aged for
12 months in new oak. It was racked once before being bottled without fining or
filtration.
