Biodynamic practises and no sulfites

Pierre Naigeon is the fifth generation of his family to be based in Gevrey-Chambertin, making wine. But Naigeons had been there since at least the 1700s. Initially farmers and coopers, the Naigeon family bought some acres of vines and started to produce a few barrels of red wine.

While the family has been in the wine for decades, Domaine Pierre Naigeon is a relatively recent creation. Pierre Naigeon began broking wine in around 1991 and also took on the few remain vines owned by the family – it was not much more than 1 hectare, but it included both Bonnes-Mares and Charmes-Chambertin. Pierre, who has also experienced making wine in the Yarra Valley, has since then built up his domaine to 11.5 hectares mainly through fermage and metayage contracts. He also has some grape-purchasing contracts, mainly for white wines.

Pierre vinifies everything himself, without blending different climats. That is why you can find a remarkable number of 10 different Gevrey-Chambertin! In the vineyard, he uses no herbicides, insecticides or synthetic anti-rot treatments. He’s not certified bio but his methods are similar. He has also entered the biodynamic path: he uses these practices and follows the lunar cycles for all his operations in the vineyard and in the cellar.
Moreover, all the wines have been vinified without sulphites in 2018.

Pierre Naigeon’s philosophy is to work harder in the vineyard and then let the grapes follow their way in the cellar. He advocates minimal intervention during the winemaking. After the fermentation, the wine is put into barrels by gravity. The average of new oak is around 20%, but it can rise up to 60% for the Grands Crus. Bottling is made without fining nor filtration. Each wine of Pierre NAIGEON shows a beautiful expression of their respective terroirs, with vibrant fruit aromas and very elegant tannins.
