Domaine Chantal Lescure was established in 1975 by Chantal Lescure and her husband, Xavier Machard de Gramont. It is a family estate, currently owned by their children: Aymeric and Thibault Machard de Gramont.
The Domaine owns 18 hectares of vineyards, from Chambolle-Musigny on the Côte de Nuits to Volnay, on the Côte de Beaune.
The wines of Domaine Chantal Lescure, like many other small domaines, have slipped under the radar of the major English-speaking wine writers. However, the domaines wines are tasted frequently by the French critics. Bettane and Desseauve in Les Grand Guide des Vins de France describe the domaine as "Now here is a serious domaine, which owns vineyards in several quality appellations in the southern part of the Cote du Nuits, where the precise vinifications have found a successful balance between tradition and modernity. The wines have body, vigour and fairly powerful tannins but lack aggressiveness. But above all, its the naturalness and clarity of the terroir that speaks. A trustworthy source".

Domaine Chantal Lescure 2009
Nuits-St-Georges Les Damodes
Normal Price $88.00
Weekend On Line Special Price $66.00
Located right on the Vosne-Romanee border, higher up the slope than Les Boudots, so it is no surprise that this is a Nuits-St-Georges with more delicacy and finesse than usual. The soil consists of a layer of fine gravel over pink marble of Premeaux. Lescure's vines are over 40 years old.
A really bright, lifted nose. Liquorice and currants with some spicy notes. The palate feel is more Vosne-Romanee than Nuits - mineral and fresh with a lot of style. The fruit weight provides lovely mouthfeel and the wine finishes with tannins that are something of a combination of Vosne and Nuits. A smart wine indeed, that I like very much. And a great drink that I am sure will please almost everyone.
