This is one of only three Bourgogne Pinot Noirs that can attach the vineyard name to its label. It has now been given the go ahead to be re-classified to the appellation of Marsannay so this will probably be the last time this wine will be produced under the Bourgogne appellation.

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.
The colour is very dark, almost purple black. Whilst the 2019 vintage was early for reds, in 2020 they picked a week later, and the colours show more concentration. The wine is firm, quite upright and to the fore. Red fruits very much to the front, with streaks of crème de Mure and ripe, rounded tannins and notes of minerals and spice. The finish is long, rounded, firm and sweetened by the stewed red fruits.
Fermented and aged in 15% new oak.
