The village is located at the heart of the Côte de Nuits, between Vougeot and Nuits-Saint-Georges. The vines grow at an ideal altitude of approximately 250 metres and cover just over 150 ha.
"Les Jacquines" is located south of the appellation, Nuits-Saint-Georges side, and this is the name of a land that has certainly belonged to Mr Jacquinot de Richemont, a memeber of Parliament from Dijon who, as far as we know, was a big land owner in the lieux-dits neighbouring "La Tâche".


Grape variety: pinot noir
Soils: limestone scree resting on marls.
Orientation: South/East

Harvest date: 17 September 2017.
The grapes were handpicked. They were sorted a first time in the vineyard and again on the sorting table when they arrived at the winery.
At the winery: 100% destemmed grapes and were gravity-fed into tanks. Maceration lasted a total of 15 days including 3 days of cold maceration (12°C). Fermentation used indigenous yeasts only (no additives such as enzymes or tannins were used). 2 punchings of the cap. Vinification without sulfur.


Maturation: aged on the lees for 16 months with no racking using a proportion of 35% new French oak barrels.
Barrels: French oak barrels that had been toasted at low temperatures for a long time to impart a very delicate touch of oak to the wine.


Bottling: The wine was not fined but was very gently filtered before being bottled using gravity in March 2019.
Number of bottles: 945.


2017 – Finesse
The growing cycle was thrown off-kilter by a very cold winter, late spring frost, then optimal conditions for rapid flowering, sporadic hail, and summer drought. Harvesting began in early September in the sun, and after several lean years, the vines finally produced abundant grapes, although with significant differences in maturity between whites and reds and from one region to another, which called for strict sorting.
Ageing potential: from 8 to 15 years.

Tasting notes

The color is brilliant ruby ​​red. The delicate nose exudes aromas of black fruit and some floral notes. The palate, which is quite powerful in attack, offers silky tannins and a good length.
