A very attractive, elegant and refined Pinot from a top producer. Coming from a single plot near the villages of Meuilley in the Hautes Côtes and aged in 40% oak for 12 months using the larger Demi-Muid barrels to lessen the vanilla contact. 10% new oak.

Domaine Lécheneaut

This superb 10ha domaine was created in the 1980’s by Fernand, father of Philippe and Vincent who now run the domaine. The wines are very exciting and sumptious, brimming with expressive and beautiful Pinot Noir characters, with 30% whole bunch fermentation. The wines are aged for 12 months in barrel with 80% being supplied by Francois Frères.
Dark in colour, limpid and deep, leads to an appealing and fragrant nose, showing ripe black fruits and some sweetness. The palate is concentrated, ripe and full, with plush tannins and some spice to add warmth and a kick at the end. The sweet oak is careful not to dominate and the whole wine gives the impression of elegance and power.
