PIERRE NAIGEON COTES DE NUITS MIXED CASE
Three Faces of the Cotes de Nuits with Pierre Naigeon.
Classic Vintages from the master of the single-vineyard small cuvee.
Includes 4 bottles of each:
Domaine Pierre Naigeon Morey St. Denis 'Les Herbouttes' 2012
Pierre Naigeon only makes single-vineyard wines (more than 25 different lieu-dit) that are vinified and bottled separately, without fining or filtration, to guard the pure expression of each terroir. This single-vineyard Morey St. Denis produced 1119 bottles in 2012. Expressive floral and fruity, orange flower acidity, suave elegance built on fine tannins. Delicate, vibrant and intense, a real pleasure with a great finish.
Domaine Pierre Naigeon Gevrey-Chambertin 'Creux Brouillard' 2012
This single-vineyard Gevrey-Chambertin 'Creux Brouillard' (which means 'foggy hollow') produced 3450 bottles in 2012. So Gevrey. Pure, floral and fruity. Great open bouquet, crisp juicy fruit, good balance and acidity, and lots of stuffing. A stellar finish.
Domaine Pierre Naigeon Fixin 1er Cru 'Les Hervelets' 2010
This Fixin 1er Cru 'Les Hervelets', one of the top 1er Cru vineyards in Fixin, produced 1709 bottles in the excellent 2010 vintage. Good lemony acidity, tense and earthy, with full open red fruit and an incredible kimmerigian-like minerality. Fixin without the rusticity.
