Domaine 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 extraordinary quality, maturity and concentration.
Charming, characteristic raspberry fruit tones with hints of spice leads to a smooth palate of sweet Morello cherry and a hint of smokiness. A well structured wine, with balanced oak and a long finish. A great match for grilled rabbit, chicken and duck dishes.
A perfumed and elegant expression of Gevrey-Chambertin with violet and smooth red cherry notes and a lovely freshness. Game, red meats and hard cheese such as Comté.
