This 0.7 ha plot is situated on the Vosne-Romanée side of Nuits-St-Georges and is planted with vines that are over 70 years old. The grapes are destemmed 100%. This is a polished, complex and richly concentrated Nuits that will repay keeping.

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 rich, sweetly edged Pinot, offering classic smoky spicy red fruits, a lick of mulled oriental spices, sweet oak and a concentrated core. The tannins are balanced, generous but perfectly in tune with the fruit and fresh acidity.
