A luscious wine which is a sell out every year! This domaine is the dominant landowner of this lieux-dit with a 1.7 ha limestone plot of late ripening vines, some of which are 50 years old. It is situated on this midslope in between the villages of Nuits-Saint- Georges and Vosne Romanée.

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.
This wine is luscious with a velvety texture, black fruits, coconut and a creamy caramel oak finish.
Try this wine with grilled mushrooms stuffed with garlic butter and breadcrumbs. Yummy!
Some of the vines are 50 years old. Aged in 30% new oak, a mixture of French and American barrels.
