Description

This red wine is in line with the Burgundies from the 18th century “full of fire, bite, and lightness, almost all spirit” said Father Claude Arnoux, author of the 1st book about Burgundy wines. Purple or dark ruby in color, it is often boasting aromas of raspberry, black cherry, and licorice. With a direct and firm flavor, it has pleasant tannins when mature, body without being in excess. - Winemaker's Notes

Reduction once again suppresses the fruit though there is a lovely sense of tension and precision to the lightly mineral-inflected flavors that offer good richness and persistence on the well-balanced and firm finish. This is lovely and, like the Clos Prieur, is recommended.- BH86-89

The Winery

The House of Lécheneaut is implanted 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.

HISTORY OF THE DOMAIN

During the late 1950’s, Moreysien de souche Fernand Lécheneaut founded the house with the same name in Nuits-Saint-Georges. The domain contained two and a half hectares of vineyards, divided among the communes of Nuits-Saint-Georges, Chambolle-Musigny, and Morey-Saint-Denis.

In 1986, after having followed an oenological training at the Viticole highschool in Beaune, the sons of Fernand, Philippe and Vincent, rooted in their burgundy terroir since their childhood, naturally followed suit with the firm intention of prospering the family’s domain.

From this date on, the Lécheneaut Domain will continue to grow and develop. Additional vineyards were obtained in Nuits-Saint-Georges and in Vosne-Romanée in 1987. New parcels, including some Premiers Crus, were acquired a little later in Chambolle-Musigny and Gevrey-Chambertin. Then the illustrious Premier Crus of Nuits-Saint-Georges “Les Pruliers” and “le Clos des Ormes” in Morey-Saint-Denis made a remarkable addition to the Domain.
