Description:
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.

Vinification
Manual harvest followed by severe sorting on the sorting table. The vinification is done by gravity (without use of pump), with indigenous yeasts from the grapes. Cold maceration is done before fermentation for 9 days, followed by natural fermentation (20 days) and ageing 'sur lies' for 12 months in oak (10% new). Unfined and unfiltered.

Viticulture
From two parcels of land totalling 1 ha where the average age of the vines are 50 years old. 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

Tasting Note
Expressive blackberry fruit, quite ripe and juicy but combined with characteristic complex and earthy Gevrey terroir flavours. Lovely depth and concentration.

Everyday Serving Suggestion
Grilled meats, poultry dishes with mushrooms, veal, fresh cheeses and fine cheeses.

Producer Information

In 1890, the Naigeon family is yet established in Gevrey Chambertin since more than 150 years. Initially farmers and cooper, the Naigeon family buys some acrages of vines and so does start to produce a few barrels of red. The Domaine is born ! Like always at this time, the wine production is a very small income, so the cooperage and the farm are continued, together with a small wine merchant activity.

The estate and the wine business grows year after year. When my father Jean-Pierre come to world in 1928, my grandparents are in charge of the Domaine and the wine merchant business, started more than 30 years ago.

Jeanne and Pierre Naigeon, my grand parents, are adding to the Domaine some prestigious Grands Crus from the Côte de Nuits, with Charmes Chambertin and Bonnes Mares. Their youngest sun, Jean-Pierre (my father) will take over the family business in 1955, after some hotel management studies. Jean-Pierre marries Wera the same year and they will have 4 boys. Pierre, one of them, will join his father in the business in 1980.

When Jean-Pierre passed away in 1996, the domaine was still quite small. In 2003 and 2005, Pierre increased the Domaine to the now a day size of 11.5 hectares (29 acres).

A green agriculture, a permanent involvement and care and the research of the perfect expression of the grape variety are the guide line to produce wines full of fragrances, delicate and powerful together, revealing the best of our terroirs.

Tenneguy Mailly, who was in charge during 17 years of a very prestigious estate in Meursault has joined Pierre Naigeon from the harvest 2008. He his huge passion for wine and his fantastic knowledge pulls forward the Pierre Naigeon production, on a very high level of quality.
