Domaine Jean Chauvenet is a small family-owned domaine of just 10 hectares. The domaine produces 9 appellations (in regular years) specializing in some of Nuits-St-Georges' most interesting vineyards from the north to the south.

Last Sunday I attended a private tasting of some of the top Domaines in our portfolio. There were many super 2016's but one wine impressed me no end. It was not a Grand Cru or even a Premier Cru from Vosne-Romanee or Chambolle-Musigny. It was a Nuits-St-Georges!

Domaine Jean Chauvenet's Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les Perrieres 2016 is a stunner. The vineyard name Perrieres, like numerous others scattered across the Cote d'Or, comes from the quarry on the site. The quarry in NSG Perrieres is unique in Burgundy as it lies underneath the vineyard (rather than open face) and is still in operation. The marble extracted is of fine quality and this special character seems to be imparted in this wine.

Perrieres is also one of the commune's highest vineyards contributing an airiness to an already mineral wine.

The domaine produced only 3 barrels in the frost decimated 2016 vintage. We have just 4 cases to sell. Order this stunner now before it all goes and save 15%.

chauvenet Perrieres label new Darren Harris: Chauvenet own parcels in seven Nuits Premier Crus including Les Vaucrains, Les Damodes and Les Bousselots but it is their small 0.23 hectare parcel in Les Perrieres that has me gob-smacked in 2016. The wine combines red and black fruits in a lifted, aromatic nose with minerals in spades. It is fresh and vibrant yet deeply flavoured with subtle spices playing in the background. 1/3 new oak contributes to the freshness and ensures the wine remains lifted and aromatic. This is really fine NSG Premier Cru with an elegant character yet never losing its stamp of origin. Only 3 barrels produced in 2016. Very fine quality.
