The grapes come from two parcels: one located just under the village of Fixin and the second in the Hautes Côtes de Nuits by the village of Segrois. Both parcels are situated at an elevation of over 280 metres above sea level where the soils are clay and limestone. The vines are cultivated organically without the use of herbicides and insecticides and is certified organic from the 2019 vintage.

Pierre’s philosophy is to make wines as naturally as possible, without additions, creating balanced wines from the outset. Vinification takes place in a gravity-fed winery without the use of pumps. The whole bunches of Aligoté grapes were cooled for two to four days on the skins prior to pressing, in order to naturally extract the ‘terroir aromas’ from the skins. This skin contact process also imparts the wine with richness on the palate. The grapes were then pressed and fermented with indigenous yeasts before being aged for one year in French oak barrels. The wine was not fined or filtered prior to bottling, which took place with the addition of minimal sulphur.

Domaine Pierre Naigeon

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.
