Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

This too is airy and quite cool with a pretty mix of red, blue and violet-infused aromas nuanced with notes of stone and underbrush that complement the sweet, refined and pure middle weight flavors that possess really lovely mid-palate fat that completely buffers the firm, persistent and elegant finish. I like the subtle spiciness and the length here is seriously impressive. Terrific and recommended.

Range:90-92

Frederic Esmonin, France
Before 1988, Winemaker André Esmonin sold all his grapes to negociants such as Leroy and Louis Jadot. It was his Andre’s son, Frédéric who pushed the family to domaine bottle their wines. The farming at this address is lutte raisonée, meaning use of chemical treatments is done only if the vineyards are threatened, and not as a matter of course. They regularly plow their soils, and herbicides are have not been used for almost 15 years. When choosing to pick, they tend to error on the early side to avoid over-ripeness. The grapes are de-stemmed, and given a short, cold-maceration to get good color set, before letting the must rise to fermentation temperature. The use of oak is well-judged, and if anything, on the spare side, rarely showing its presence in the finished wine. They bottle early, delivering a dark, fresh fruit character, instead of relying on weight or concentration for palate impression. The end result are wines that gain an excellent, savory, meaty, Gevrey-character as they gain time in a bottle. Esmonin wines are routinely noted for their admirably long life-span.

The origin of perhaps the world’s very finest Pinot noir, Côte de Nuits is the northern half of the Côte d'Or and includes the famous wine villages of Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-St-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Vougeot, Vosne-Romanée, Flagey-Echezeaux and Nuits-St-Georges.

Fine whites from Chardonnay are certainly found in the Côte de Nuits, but with much less frequency than top-performing reds made of Pinot noir. The little village of Nuits-St-Georges in its southern end gave the region its name: Côte de Nuits. The city of Dijon marks its northern border.
