Grape varieties:

100% Pinot Noir

Tasting Note:

A really bright, lifted nose. Liquorice and currants with some spicy notes. The palate feel is more Vosne-Romanee than Nuits - mineral and fresh with a lot of style. The fruit weight provides lovely mouthfeel and the wine finishes with tannins that are something of a combination of Vosne and Nuits.

History:

Established in 1975 by Chantal Lescure and her husband, Xavier Machard de Gramont, Domaine Chantal Lescure is a family estate, currently owned by their children : Aymeric et Thibault Machard de Gramont. The Domaine Chantal Lescure owns 18 hectares of vineyard, from Chambolle-Musigny on the Côte de Nuits to Volnay, on the Côte de Beaune. They have now also achieved certified organic status. The domaine’s working motto is: “Great wines require great vines.” The approach in the vineyard is of utmost importance as regards the quality of the grapes. All year long, great care is taken to ensure the grapes are perfectly healthy and ripe come harvest time. The cultivation methods respect the soil, the plant and the environment — and are part of the team’s broader philosophy on soil health and plant-soil balance. The winemaking techniques, which use gentle and natural methods without additives, preserve the integrity of the grapes. The goal is to obtain wines which truly reflect the specificities of each terroir.
