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.
This is a very stylish and highly perfumed Pinot Noir, displaying a seductive, rich and sensual nose, very inviting mouthful of crushed raspberry, ripe summer berry coulis laced with crème de Frais and a touch of sweet oak. This is an immediately attractive wine, open and quite lush, but with firming tannins and a lovely fresh acid lick that keeps the wine focused and tight.
Fermented and aged in a mixture of both French, American and Hungarian oak of which 25% is new.
