2019 Nuits Saint Georges Villages ‘Au Chouillot’ Domaine Lécheneaut – En Primeur is available to purchase. Please click here to email us your wish-list at [email protected].
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.
“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. Will age spectacularly.”
