Un nuits-saint-georges un brin sauvage, à attendre quelques années puis à déguster en compagnie d'un beau gibier.  More info

Nuits-Saint-Georges Aux Chouillets Vieilles Vignes is produced from a small plot of less than one hectare. On the nose, this wine is relatively understated, especially in its youth. It expresses aromas of small wild fruit with floral and vegetable notes; after a few years, these aromas develop into candied strawberries and light tobacco. The palate is characterised by great density and fairly firm tannins, which will require a few years' cellaring to mellow.

Nuits Saint-Georges Au Chouillet Vieilles Vignes Lécheneaut (Domaine) serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Faisan rôti, Gigue de chevreuil, Filet de boeuf en croûte.

    Information about domain Lécheneaut

    Domaine Lécheneaut was founded at Nuits Saint-Georges in the late 1950s, with 2.5 hectares of vines as its starting point. In 1986, Fernand's two sons, Philippe and Vincent took over, enlarged the domaine (10 hectares over 18 appellations today) and modernised its facilities. Together, they produce wines in a classic Burgundy style, with good density, without excess and a true expression of the terroirs. They rely on superb plots in the villages of Morey, Chambolle, Vosne and Nuits. The domaine only produces red wines. The wines always show a very high precision in élevage and vinification. The prices have remained reasonable, making it an excellent place to go in Côte des Nuits.
