This is a 0.5Ha lieux dit of perfect exposure and fragmented clay and limestone soil near the tiny village of Chambolle, adjoining Clos de Tart - you can't get a better neighbour than that! Harvested at a healthy 47hl/ha, Alban destemmed the ripe Pinot Noir 100%.

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 very, very rich and seductive Pinot Noir, lush and weighty, with complex and slightly feral aromas of red fruits, kirsch, creamy raspberry and a robust tannin structure. The length is amazing, seemingly endless and perfumed throughout.
Destemmed, after hand harvesting, only a light sorting was used due to the perfectly ripe berries. Fermented on the skins for 12 days, with 40% new oak.
