A new acquisition by Jules Lécheneaut, this superb vineyard lies just above the quarries in Corgoloin at the southern end of the Côte de Nuits. The vines (0.5HA) were planted in 1957 and give a dense, rich wine with red and black fruits and a lovely touch of spice. Drink 2025-2028.

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.

Intensely dark in colour, leading to an appealing and fragrant nose, showing ripe black fruits. The palate is concentrated, ripe and full, with plush tannins and some spice to add warmth. The sweet oak marries well with the juicy fruit and creates a very balanced wine. Elegant yet powerful!
Drink with a Ribeye steak or creamy mushroom dish
