Having merged the domaines of their two families slowly since 1985, Hubert and Evelyn Chauvenet work 14.6 hectares of some of the most celebrated vineyards of the Côtes de Nuits, based out of Nuits-Saint-Georges. They aggressively control yields using de-budding in the spring, and green harvesting later in the season to lend rigour to the vines and more concentration to the grapes. 14-16 months élevage 50% in stainless steel, 50% in 228L oak barrels-no new oak.
Bright, cherry flavours finish on a touch of coffee. Juicy, gentle, drinkable and silky already.
