Domain J. Chezeaux

Jérôme Chézeaux

" La diversité du vignoble du domaine Chézeaux permet de proposer 14 appellations différentes. "

THE DOMAINE

The Chezeaux domaine was built on the foundations of an estate owned since 1930 by Julien Missery.  Bernard Chezeaux acceded to the ownership of the domaine in 1971 selling most of the wines produced there to negociants during his reign.  On his untimely death in 1993, his son, Jérome, took over the direction of the domaine and it was at this moment that we made Jérome’s acquaintance.  It was a fortuitous encounter as our collaboration has meshed perfectly with Jérome’s intention to increase the amount of wine bottled at the estate.

The estate, which is based in Prémeaux-Prissey just south of Nuits Saint Georges, owns approximately 12 hectares of vineyards, some of which were brought into play from the family holdings of Jérome’s wife, Pierrette.  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, as mentioned above, a series of the most elite lieu-dits in the zone.  

Jérome Chézeaux strictly follows the most traditional of methods in the cellar being firmly “non-interventionist”.  The purity of his wines is revelatory; there is an understated majesty to every offering in the portfolio. After a manual harvest, the grapes undergo a cold maceration of 3 to 4 days and the entire cuvaison extends for approximately three weeks.  During that time remontage and pigeage are practiced; the extent to which both techniques are used depends on the structure of the vintage.  Indigenous yeasts are used exclusively and malolactic fermentation occurs in small oak barrels during the extended elevage.  Each year between a quarter and one-third of the barrels are replaced which means that the wines are exposed at most to 30% new oak.  The wines are bottled without filtration between 18 to 24 months after harvest.

THE WINES

The large vineyard of the domaine Jérôme CHEZEAUX allow the estate to have 14 different appellations. Each one fits a maket segment. At the estate, the harvest is done only by hand for the villages, 1er crus and grand crus wines. Then, a pre-cold maceration is done during 3 or 4 days before a two weeks fermentation. During the fermentation, punchings down and pumpings over are done every day. The malo-lactique fermentation is done in oak barrels. 1/3 of the barrels are renewed every year. The bottling is done between 18 and 24 months of ageing.

 

The Vineyard of Nuits-Saint-Georges 

The appellation falls into two parts, divided by the town itself. The northern portion extends as far as the border of Vosne-Romanée, and the southern section lies partly in Nuits-Saint-Georges and partly in Premeaux. Corresponding differences are observed in the wines. Their colour is an intense crepuscular crimson with a hint of mauve. The nose often features rose and liquorice. The young red wine has aromas of cherry, strawberry and blackcurrant, and when matured, leather, truffle, fur, game. Notes of macerated fruits (prune) complete the picture. Muscular and vigorous, chewy and full-bodied, its structure is both well built and well-balanced and it is long in the mouth. It is most fully enjoyed after several years' laying down which rounds it out and underlines its sensuality and breeding.The (rare) whites have a strong gold colour. They are firm and usually heady with a bouquet of brioche and sometimes honey, underpinned by white flowers.

 

The Vineyard of  Vosne-Romanée 

« Burgundy has produced nothing better than this little corner where all her charms come together. » So wrote Gaston Roupnel Burgundian author, celebrated historian of the French countryside. Shades of red vary from pure ruby to black tulip and are often quite intense. At other times the wine is a fiery red darkening to garnet with a touch of crimson. Ripe fruit over spices is frequently the main ingredient of the bouquet, modified by the presence of strawberry, raspberry, bilberry, or blackcurrant. These refined and well-blended aromas evolve with age into cherries-in-brandy, preserved fruits, leather and fur, and gamey/woodland scents. On the palate the wine is velvety and distinguished - the Pinot Noir at the top of its form. The wine may seem a little austere in its youth ; it needs time in the bottle to develop structure and fleshy texture. Often full-bodied and voluptuous, this wine is the equivalent of a Rubens nude.

 

The Vineyard of Clos de Vougeot 

The name Vougeot immediately calls up the name of that famous vineyard, the Clos de Vougeot. But this village of the Côte de Nuits has other fine vineyards. The name itself derives from that of the little river Vouge. The powerful abbey of Cîteaux established these vineyards in the 12th century and laid the foundations of their long brilliant reputation. Their claim to fame is due at least partly to the fact that, rather unusually for the Côte de Nuits, Vougeot produces white wines (Chardonnay) as well as red (Pinot Noir).The appellation was formally instituted in 1936.

Clos de Vougeot has close affinities with its illustrious near neighbours (Musigny, Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses). Its colour is between crimson and purple - deep, dark and luminous. It develops aromas of violet and small fruits (Morellocherry, blackcurrant). When older, it leans towards underbrush, fallen leaves and truffle over animal notes. In the mouth, it has a four-sided structure but its tannins are nonetheless delicate. The attack is straightforward, acidity and chewiness.
