A bit of a rarity but what tremendous value! The vineyards are high altitude, south facing in the north of the Nuits-St-Georges appellation, with a high lime content in the soil. A taut, steely palate, rich in exotic fruit - Quite delicious!

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 powerful Chardonnay, forward, quite intense and showing a core of stewed apple, buttered nut, wet stones and tropical fruit, supported by judicious new oak, freshest of acidity that cuts through the oiliness of the wine and a sweetness of vanilla that shows on the long finish.
Aged in 100% new 300lt oak barrels, battonage every day for 6 months.
