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.
A rich and evocative Pinot Noir, layered with sweet sun-kissed red and black cherry fruit, raspberry and pomegranate. There is a concentration of fruit, almost akin to a liqueur within its tight core, balanced by freshness and lovely earthy minerality. Complex, long and impressive.
Produced from 45-70 Year old vines, some planted by Alban’s grandfather. Hand Picked and fermented in 60% new oak, with a high proportion of 300lt demi-muids.
