Domaine Jerome Chezeaux has been working with super importer Neil Rosenthal for 25 years. The Chezeaux family make a full range of wines from 11 + hectares of old vines in the Cote de Nuits. We are lucky that these fine vineyards remain in their capable hands. The wines are very pure and represent great value. His daughter Lyse has joined him and like most modern young Burgundy growers she has completed a series of international internships. She will carry on the family tradition and bring fresh ideas. A new generation is reinvigorating the Cote d'Or. Many young women are contributing to this renaissance in Burgundy. Traditionally made, hand harvested, indigenous yeasts and bottled unfiltered after a 18 to 24 month elevage. A maximum of 30% new oak is used, none on the Bourgogne rouge. The wines have an understated elegance, they are fresh and precise.
What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...
This is a rare Bourgogne Blanc that is still made principally from Pinot Blanc from a small .36-hectare parcel of old vines. The vineyard is composed of about 80% Pinot Blanc and 20% Chardonnay. The grapes are harvested and fermented together and aged half in barrel and half in stainless steel for about nine months before being bottled. The wine is quite fresh, with a bright floral nose. It is round on the palate, but the fruit feels cool and vibrant, with underlying earthy notes of dried flowers.
