Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
D 95
Decanter
The Léchenauts' east-facing parcel of 60-year-old vines was lightly affected by hail, but this didn't have any impact on quality. Focused, bright and very well balanced, with violet aromas, stylish 50% new wood, some added freshness and structure from partial whole cluster fermentation and good underlying concentration.
BH 92
Burghound.com
Very ripe if still reasonably fresh aromas feature a menthol top note on the sauvage-suffused aromas of cassis, plum and earth. There is very good intensity to the larger-scaled flavors that aren't as concentrated as they normally are but they still flash good powerful on the very firm, rustic and serious finish that also exhibits a subtle touch of warmth. Note that this is very definitely structured and will require extended patience.

Lecheneaut Lecheneaut Vineyards Winery Image

The Domaine Lécheneaut is located in Nuits-Saint-Georges where it holds a prestigious position in the heart of the Burgundy terroir. It flourishes on ten hectares of vineyards scattered among eighteen glorious appellations from Côte de Nuits, which bestows its rich intensity and uniqueness. Fifty to sixty thousand bottles of renowned nectar are released each year from its winery, sent off to conquer the international markets.

The Burgundy terroir is composed of a fantastic mosaic of “climats”, very precise limits with distinct geological characteristics. On these countless parcels, the two regional grape varieties, the Chardonnay and the Pinot Noir, have endless possibilities, producing crus with an exceptional variety. It is this unique richness of Burgundy that Philippe and Vincent Lécheneaut are determined to preserve and perpetuate.

Nuits-St-Georges Wine

Cote de Nuits, Burgundy

View all products

Inhabiting the bottom end of the northern half of the Côte d’Or, Nuits-St-Georges is a busy, market-driven town and home to many of Burgundy’s negociants. It is also the largest town in the Côte d’Or after Beaune and contributes "nuits" to the name of Côte de Nuits (i.e., the northern half of the Côte d’Or).

The appellation itself is divided into two parts, where in the north it directly borders Vosne-Romanée, the southerly end is the commune of Prémeaux. There are no Grands Crus in this village, though it does have a large number of Premiers Crus.

The best Nuits-St-Georges Pinot Noir are layered with cherry, plum, underbrush and sandalwood. The fruit is sweet, the wine energetic, and the finish long and lush.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
