Description

Here's a taut, linear version, whose dense structure supports black currant, blackberry, violet and spice notes and stony, chalky flavors. Intense and energetic, with a long, fruit-, mineral- and spice-tinged aftertaste. Best from 2022 through 2043. WS95

A slightly more deeply pitched nose is composed of liqueur-like black fruit, violet, forest floor and earth aromas. There is excellent richness to the powerful and robust big-bodied flavors that possess impressive density on the sleekly muscled and powerful finish. This notably firm effort isn't especially refined but there's plenty of punch and length and here too I would advise allowing at least 6 to 8 years of cellaring.- BH90-93

« Les Pruliers » display a strong color. Young, it imposes its personality. Fresh red fruit aromas mingle with fine plant fragrances evoking wild prunes as well as notes of licorice and spiced roses. Mature, depth and roundness mask a strict final frame. You will perceive aromas of cocoa, smoked meat, and undergrowth. Age brings forth a generous and sensual smoothness. - Winemaker's Notes

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.
