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.
A highly exotic and intense Chambolle, evocative and forward nose exuding smoky, spicy notes of mulled red fruits and sweet oak. Fragrant, lush and spliced with invigorating freshness. Luxurious mid-core, opens to silky tannins and poised at the finish.
Very old vines, up to 80 years old, 5 parcels of vines handpicked and partly destemmed. Small yields occurred in 2022 due to Millerandage, with resulting small berries. 50% new oak, for 14 months
