Description

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.

Grape

100% Pinot Noir

Vineyard & Vinification Note

Toponymy: The term “Vaucrains” could mean a not very fertile place or coming from the Burgundian patois relating to its hilly relief (Vau) which forms a crack in the hillside (Crain).

Area in production at the estate: 26 ares 47 ca

Soils: Rich, heavy, stony and slightly calcareous soil.

Exposure: East, North / East Southern part of Nuits-Saint-Georges

Altitude: 250m to 280m

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.

Tasting Note

“Les Vaucrains” has a fairly strong colour and a powerful nose. By its very present tannins, “Les Vaucrains” can seem a little severe in its youth. This full-bodied wine requires patience, and give it time to settle down.
