Winemaker Notes

With a purple tint, intense and sometimes veering to mauve, the aromas often evoke rose and licorice. Other aromas include cherry, strawberry, blackcurrant, leather, truffle, fur, and game. Macerated fruity notes complete the bouquet. Vigorous and robust, it has body and character with a balanced and framed structure. Long lasting on the palate, it can be fully enjoyed after several years of ageing; maturity brings a sultry and elegant roundness.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
BH 92
Burghound.com
A deft application of wood frames the markedly earthy nose of purple fruit, warm earth and hints of animale. There is excellent richness and focused power to the concentrated, ripe and mouth coating flavors that deliver outstanding depth and length on the rustic and very serious finish. This old school effort is a first-rate Nuits villages and highly recommended provided you have the patience to cellar it for at least 5 to 7 years first.
Barrel Sample: 89-92

Wine Spectator
High-toned kirsch and black currant aromas and flavors are shaded by toast and spice notes from oak. Overall this is elegant and deftly balanced, with a lingering, smoky aftertaste. Drink now through 2028.

Lecheneaut, Nuits-St-Georges, Cote de Nuits, Cote d'Or, Burgundy, France
Image of winery
The Domaine Lécheneaut is located in Nuits-Saint-Georges where it holds a prestigious position in the heart of the Burgundy terroir. It flourishes on ten hectares of vineyards scattered among eighteen glorious appellations from Côte de Nuits, which bestows its rich intensity and uniqueness. Fifty to sixty thousand bottles of renowned nectar are released each year from its winery, sent off to conquer the international markets.

The Burgundy terroir is composed of a fantastic mosaic of “climats”, very precise limits with distinct geological characteristics. On these countless parcels, the two regional grape varieties, the Chardonnay and the Pinot Noir, have endless possibilities, producing crus with an exceptional variety. It is this unique richness of Burgundy that Philippe and Vincent Lécheneaut are determined to preserve and perpetuate.

Nuits-St-Georges

View all wine

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.

Pinot Noir

View all wine

One of the most difficult yet rewarding grapes to grow, Pinot Noir is commonly referred to by winemakers as the “heartbreak grape.” However, the greatest red wines of Burgundy prove that it is unquestionably worth the effort. More reflective than most varieties of the land on which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate, requires low yields to achieve high quality, and demands care in the vineyard and lots of attention in the winery. It is an important component of Champagne and the only variety permitted in red Burgundy. Pinot Noir enjoys immense popularity internationally, most notably in Oregon, California, and New Zealand.

In the Glass

Pinot Noir Is all about red fruit—strawberry, raspberry, and cherry. It is relatively pale in color with soft tannins and lively acidity. It ranges in body from very light to the heavier side of medium, typically landing somewhere in the middle—giving it extensive possibilities for food pairing. With age (of which the best examples can handle an astounding amount), it can develop hauntingly beautiful characteristics of fresh earth, autumn leaves, and truffles.

Perfect Pairings

Pinot’s healthy acidity cuts through the oiliness of pink-fleshed fish like salmon, ocean trout, and tuna. Its mild mannered tannins don’t fight with spicy food, and give it enough structure to pair with all sorts of poultry—chicken, quail, and especially duck. As the namesake wine of Boeuf Bourguignon, it can even match with heavier fare. Pinot Noir is also very vegetarian-friendly—most notably with any dish that features mushrooms.

Sommelier Secret

Pinot Noir is dangerously drinkable, highly addictive, and has a bad habit of emptying the wallet. Look for affordable but still delicious examples from Germany (as Spätburgunder), Italy (as Pinot Nero), Chile, New Zealand, and France’s Loire Valley and Alsace regions.
