    Chateau de Premeaux, France
    In 1983 Alain Pelletier took over the family farm, formerly a Chateau which burned down before the French Revolution. A decisive man, he immediately stopped he father’s practice of selling off all their wine to negociants, and began estate bottling. He instituted a vigorous pruning program in the years that followed to improve the health of his vines and lower yields. In 1985 a major updating of the cave was done. In 1989-90, following the advice of his friends and neighbors Bertrand Ambroise and Alain Meunier (of Domaine Jean-Jacques Confuron), Pelletier installed a sorting table and stopped fining and filtering all his red wines. In the latter 90s he began tending his white wine vineyard organically, a practice he is gradually moving toward with all of his vineyards.

    Cote de Nuits, Burgundy

    View all products

    Inhabiting the bottom end of the northern half of the Côte d’Or, Nuits-St-Georges is a busy, market-driven town and home to many of Burgundy’s negociants. It is also the largest town in the Côte d’Or after Beaune and contributes "nuits" to the name of Côte de Nuits (i.e., the northern half of the Côte d’Or).

    The appellation itself is divided into two parts, where in the north it directly borders Vosne-Romanée, the southerly end is the commune of Prémeaux. There are no Grands Crus in this village, though it does have a large number of Premiers Crus.

    The best Nuits-St-Georges Pinot Noir are layered with cherry, plum, underbrush and sandalwood. The fruit is sweet, the wine energetic, and the finish long and lush.

    Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
