Gevrey Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2013, Les Marchais, Domaine Pierre Naigeon

Tasting Note

Characteristic raspberry and cherry with some dried fruits on the nose. Medium to full bodied with a little earthiness. Well structured with balanced oak, fine ripe tannins and good acidity.

Producer Note

The Naigeon family has been established in Gevrey Chambertin for more than 150 years. Initially coopers and farmers they acquired some vineyards to produce wine in 1890 and started a wine merchant activity. 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 any herbicides. He looks to produce wines full of fragrance, revealing the natural terroir. The average age of his vines is remarkably high, mostly over 50 years. This ensures deep roots, nourishing the vines from many different layers of soil, to produce the most complex wines, and reduces the natural level of cropping, providing more concentrated wines.

Vineyard

High density planting with 3,500 vines per hectare. The vines are Guyot trained. Organic fertilizers, no herbicides or insecticides. Plouging , pruning and green harvest.

Winemaking

Manual harvest followed by manual sorting. The vinification is fed by gravity (without the use of pumps). Cold maceration for 6 to 7 days before a natural fermentation with indigenous yeasts from the grapes lasting 10 to 15 days. Ageing 'sur lies'for 14 months in oak (10% new). Unfined and unfiltered.

Serving Suggestion

Grilled meats, white meats in sauce, fresh cheeses.

Grape

Pinot Noir 100%
