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.
Very dark colour, limpid - firm, feral and exotic nose with concentrated stewed black fruits, sweet in style, lush and decadent. The nose shows some minerality and fragrance. On the palate the wine is concentrated and lush at first, with hints of limestone balancing the mulberry and mocha fruit, which leads to a delightful freshness that gives the wine tension and power. Seductive at first taste, the resulting finish shows power and a firm edge, rounded out by very ripe fruits and balancing acidity.
Aged in 30% new oak barrels, of which 40% is French and 60% is American.
