Domaine Machard de Gramont

This 20 hectare family estate is managed by Arnaud Machard de Gramont and his two sons Alban and Alexis. The cellars are located in Prissey, a neighbouring hamlet of Nuits-St-Georges. These cellars were built in the XIXth century. Their superb vaults give a "cathedral" effect to the winery. The 20 hectares of vineyards cover an impressive range of appellations spanning 50 kilometres, from Chenôve (south of Dijon) to Puligny-Montrachet (South of Beaune). This domaine is a great source of Burgundy at sensible prices. “Value for money” is not something that is often associated with the wines of the Core d’Or, however, we have dealt with this family domaine for many years for our commercial Burgundy needs – it offers more individuality than most negociants and consistently performs well. The family owns small parcels in several different appellations and manages to seduce the individual characteristics from each one. This estate now uses a blend of American and French oak, developing a unique style in the appellation of Nuits-St-Georges, Gevrey-Chambertin and Pommard.

Tasting Notes

The colour is dark, dense and appealing, with a nose of concentrated dark fruits, mulled in style, and offering notes of sweet black cherry streaked with mulberry, cassis and raspberry. Freshness supports the fruit core and oak perfectly. The oak is concentrated and layered into the fruit, adding spice, vanilla and a touch of tobacco and irons one. This is a big wine – full of energy, power and intensity.

Vinification

Fermented and aged in 50% French new oak.
