Domaine Pierre Naigeon
The Naigeon family has been established in Gevrey Chambertin for more than 150 years.
Initially coopers and farmers they acquired some vineyards to produce wine in 1890 and started a wine merchant activity.
The estate remained reasonably small until 2003 when Pierre purchased more land increasing their holdings to 11.5 hectares.
Pierre Naigeon believes passionately in sustainable farming, without the use of any herbicide.
He looks to produce wines full of fragrance, revealing the natural terroir.
The average age of his vines is remarkably high, mostly over 50 years.
This ensures deep roots, nourishing the vines from many different lays of soil, to produce the most complex wines, and reduces the natural level of cropping, providing more concentrated wines.
