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...
Jérome Chézeaux owns a petit parcel of Pruliers (about one-tenth of an hectare) that is planted to very old vines on dark brown, red-inflected soil in the zone between Nuit Saint Georges and Prémeaux. This wine is consistently one of the top performers in the Chezeaux cellar and we consider ourselves fortunate to have access to a barrel each year (300 bottles).
