Marsannay sans sulfites ajoutés, Domaine Pierre Naigeon

A fresh and well flavoured red Burgundy showing plump and fleshy raspberry fruit combined with notes of sloes through to a fine, long finish.

Producer Note:
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.

A wet winter and spring built soil water reserves which was important for the forthcoming growing season. A cold snap in February allowed the vines to rest and the sap to descend. Warm weather in April increased the vine’s development, which continued throughout the hot, dry growing season. Harvest took place under good conditions producing exceptionally healthy fruit. 2018 is an excellent vintage for both quantity and quality.

Marsannay is the northernmost appellation in the Côtes de Nuits, neighbouring Fixin. It is the only appellation to have AOC status for the production of red, white and rosé wine. The vineyard has an eastern orientation and is situated at 255 to 390 metres above sea level. The ‘Vielles Vignes’ or old vines are 45 years old and have developed deep root systems, nourished by complex layers of soil. The soils are diverse, predominantly clay and limestone, with white pockets of limestone and red, iron-rich soils. Pierre believes in respecting the terroir; he ensures the yields are kept low and follows organic and biodynamic principles, taking into consideration the cycles of the moon and the sun.

Vinified in a gravity-fed winery, this cuvée was made with the minimal amount of intervention and without the addition of sulphur. The perfectly ripe and healthy grapes were hand-harvested, with every bunch being delicately picked into small bins. The grapes underwent a meticulous manual sorting, before the whole bunches were gently pulled into the fermenters without the use of a pump. Fermentation started naturally with a cold soak, using indigenous yeasts from the vineyard. During fermentation, several “pigeages” or cap submersions took place. Skin contact maceration followed, lasting for a couple of days, before the wine was racked by gravity into barrels, where it matured for 12 months in French oak barrels, in the 17th century cellar. The wine was bottled without fining or filtration to preserve the natural qualities of the wine.
