More info

Pierre Naigeon is a leading and renowned producer in the Côtes de Nuits. The Naigeon family has been established in Gevrey-Chambertin for over 150 years. They acquired some vines and started to produce wine in 1890. The estate remained reasonably small until 2003 when Pierre purchased more land increasing their holdings to 11.5 hectares. Pierre Naigeon believes passionately in sustainable farming, without the use of herbicides. He believes in non-interventionist winemaking and aims to produce wines full of fragrance, revealing the natural terroir. The average age of his vines is remarkably high, mostly over 50 years, which endows the wines with an extraordinary quality, maturity and concentration.

Gevrey-Chambertin is the largest wine-producing village in Burgundy’s Côte d'Or. It is located in the far north of the Côtes de Nuits. The grapes for this cuvée come from the single vineyard ‘Creux Brouillard’, which translates as Hollow Fog in English. It is situated at the bottom of the slope where the deep limestone and clay soils are relatively cool and it is one of the last vineyards to be harvested in the village. The style from this vineyard tends to be lighter and fresher. Pierre believes in respecting the terroir; he ensures the yields are kept low and follows organic and biodynamic principles, taking into consideration the cycles of the moon and the sun.
