Domaine Jérôme Chézeaux is located in the village of Premeaux-Prissey, a stone’s throw from the town of Nuits-Saint-Georges.
Bernard Chezeaux acceded to the ownership of the Domaine in 1971. On his untimely death in 1993, his son, Jérome, took over the direction of the Domaine and created the Domaine Jérôme Chezeaux. In 2001, his wife Pierrette joined him, and the property grew with the arrival of new appellations. Their daughter Lyse joined the family winery in 2016. They own approximately 12 hectares of vineyards divided into 16 appellations. The vineyards, impeccably tended according to the principles of “lutte raisonnée”, are scattered throughout the villages of Prémeaux, Nuits Saint Georges, Vougeot and Vosne Romanée and include a series of the most elite lieu-dits in the zone.
Vineyard & Vinification Note
The parcel producing Bourgogne Aligoté is located exclusively in the commune of Premeaux-Prissey.
The harvest is carried out exclusively by hand. They carry out a first sorting in the vineyard, then on arrival at the winery on a sorting table.
The harvest is 100% destemmed. A cold maceration is carried out during the first 3-4 days out of the 18 to 21 days of vinification.
Throughout this period, daily manual remontage (punching down) and pigeage (pumping over) are practiced.
Indigenous yeasts are used exclusively, and malolactic fermentation occurs in small oak barrels during the extended ageing of the wines.
They use 30% new barrels per appellation. The wines are bottled without filtration between 18 to 24 months after harvest.
Aligoté is a fresh white wine with good underlying acidity, good length, and good density.
Great with salads and soft cheeses.
