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
2016 was generally a challenging vintage due to frost which affected the vineyard on
27th April, damaging a large part of the crop and resulting in lower yields. Fine weather
in September helped to rescue this vintage. The fruit that remained was good quality,
without extremes of acidity, alcohol or fruit concentration, resulting in a classic style of
Burgundy.
Vineyard
Pierre Naigeon believes passionately in sustainable farming. He looks to produce wines
full of fragrance, revealing the natural terroir. The vines are grown in the Grand Cru
vineyard of Charmes Chambertin, in a 25 hectare parcel of 60 year old, Guyot trained
vines. The vineyards are meticulously managed with the use of organic fertilisers; no
herbicides or insecticides are used. A sustainable approach is undertaken with
ploughing, careful pruning and a green harvest. The vines are grown in clay and
limestone soils, which have a significant presence of iron.
Winemaking
The grapes were hand-harvested with selective picking in the vineyard. The wine was
vinified without the use of pumps in the gravity-fed winery. Cold maceration took place
lasting one week, which was followed by fermentation lasting between 20 to 30 days.
During fermentation, hand plunging and pumping-over took place to oxygenate the
wine and extract the desired levels of colour, tannins and flavour. The wine was aged
for 12 months in 100% new oak and was bottled without fining or filtration.
Tasting Note

the palate with a long, elegant finish.
