A family business for many generations, the Domaine Nudant spreads over 16 hectares, divided over the Côte de Beaune and the Côte de Nuits in Burgundy. It exploits around 20 appellations such as regional, village, 1er Cru and Grand Cru. The cellars, winery and reception are in Ladoix-Serrigny. In 1453, during the Charles le Téméraire period, a man named Guillaume Nudant was already making wine!
These vines, recently acquired by the family, are exclusive to the Domaine Nudant. Soil is composed of chalky clay, with 1.12 ha of productive vines on a East/South-East exposure. The first vintage was in 1995. It is isolated from others with high walls (clos), and the presence of Bouleaux (birch) inspire its name.
Grapes are hand picked, and a meticulous berry selection takes places at the vineyard. At times, clusters can end up with only 2-3 berries, ensuring only the highest quality fruit is used. The juice then goes through cold maceration, with daily pigeage (Cap management). The fruit is pressed to barrel for fermentation, and aged between 12 and 15 months. Every year, one third of the barrels are renewed.
This wine provides intense fruity nose, ripe and tight tannins with a long and rich finish.
This wine pairs well with feathered game, guinea fowl and cheese.
