Domaine Jayer-Gilles, located in Magny les Villers in Hautes-Côtes-de-Nuits, has been managed since 1998 by Gilles Jayer-Gilles, who has been on the domaine since 1985. The vines come from the Gilles family (the current owner's mother) and following the marriage with Mr Jayer (the famous Henry Jayer's cousin), the domaine was named Gilles-Jayer before taking its current name Jayer-Gilles. Gilles represents the third generation of his family at the head of the family farm. The vineyard extends over 11 hectares mainly in the Hautes-Côtes. Élevage takes place with a high proportion of new casks, in the manner of Henri Jayer who used 100% new wood. The imprint of the wood is never too marked thanks to an extremely judicious choice of barrels from the best coopers of France. Gilles Jayer is a particularly renowned winemaker in Burgundy, a truly great winemaker. His wines emanate a communal personality with very fruity aromas. The quality of the wines is consistent and offers great aging potential. With its very reasonable prices, it is undoubtedly one of the excellent signatures of the Côte de Nuits.
About the cuvée
This white wine is superb, with the characteristic almond and butter aromas of a Côte d'Or white, but tauter than a Côte de Beaune. It goes perfectly with shellfish.
