En Primeur Nuits Saint Georges Au Chouillet Lécheneaut will be available for delivery or storage once it lands in the UK, usually two years following the en primeur offer.
Splendid, ten-hectare estate, created by Fernand Lécheneaut in the 1980s when land was affordable and which is now run by his sons Philippe and Vincent. In 2019 they decided to harvest early (6th to 15th September) in order to avoid any trace of over-ripeness and have been rewarded with a glorious range of well-balanced, rich yet fresh wines. As usual, the wines have been aged for 12 months in barrel with 80% being supplied by Francois Frères. A stunning range spanning most of the great villages of the Côte de Nuits.
The vines in this 0.7 hectare plot on the Vosne-Romanée side of Nuits are over 70 years old and merit being vinified separately. Magnificent red and black cherry fruit allied to smokey, spicy flavours. A generous, fleshy wine with fine weight and concentration.
