Splendid, ten-hectare estate created by Fernand Lécheneaut in the 1980s and now run by his sons Philippe and Vincent. Vinification is traditional with most of the fruit destemmed then cold macerated for five days before fermentation in steel and cement vats at a maximum of 28C. Ageing is in barrels from François Frères and Seguin-Moreau, whose fine-grained oak complements the wines. These are rich, elegant examples from some of the finest villages of the Côte de Nuits.
“It’s 70-year-old vines deliver a wine of great concentration and energy. Round, ripe red fruit aromas. Chewy tannins and deep cherry and red fruit flavours. Bags of depth. Exciting to see how this will come together over time.”
