Domaine Pierre Naigeon Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru 2013
Pierre Naigeon, who inherited this 120-year old estate in the mid-nineties, believes passionately in sustainable farming, without the use of any herbicide. 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 lays of soil, to produce the most complex wines, and reduces the natural level of cropping, providing more concentrated wines.
Made from 60 year old vines. Hand harvest and quality selective picking in the vineyard. Cold maceration for one week then fermentation for 20 to 30 days. Ageing from 12 to 18 months in oak (100% new)
A parcel of 25 ha situated to the south of the village of Gevrey Chambertin. The vines are Guyot trained. Organic fertilizers are used but the vines are never treated with herbicides.Green harvest before and manual grape selection in the vineyard. Hand harvest
A powerful combination of sweet Pinot fruit with oak complemented by chunky tannins.
