Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Fontenys, Domaine Pierre Naigeon

Classic Gevrey Chambertin showing wild and meaty Pinot Noir fruit with a velvety and layered structure, beautifully balanced and long.
The perfectly ripe and healthy grapes were hand harvested, with every bunch being delicately picked into small bins. The grapes then underwent a meticulous manual sorting, before the whole bunches were gently pulled into the fermenters without the use of a pump. The fermentation started naturally with a cold soak, using indigenous yeasts from the vineyard. During the fermentation process several “pigeages” or “plunging down of the cap” took place. Maceration followed the fermentation with skin contact for a couple of days, before being racked by gravity into barrels. The wine was matured for 12 months in French oak barrels in the 17th Century cellar, where the natural temperature is perfect for the wine throughout the year. No fining or filtration took place to preserve the natural qualities of the wine. Bottled by hand, by gravity.
