“A cuvée produced from 50 year old vines, harvested by the Truchetet team. We are at the bottom of the hillside, in the North of Nuits-Saint-Georges, touching Vosne-Romanée. Low yields, only two 228-litre barrels produced for this cuvée. Vinification: total destemming, 20 days of maceration with some punch downs, settling, put into barrels by gravity, 12 months of maturation in wood then 5 months in vats. Bottled in February 2021.” Morgan Truchetet

More Information

Domaine Truchetet, a very special very small Domaine in the heart of Nuits Saint Georges, it has been family owned and run for 6 generations.  Jean-Pierre Truchetet has been handing the baton over to children Morgan and Julie for some time and in 2018 he took full retirement, leaving the next generation in charge.

Soil comes first and they are now “officially” moving towards organic farming. They continue to explore new practices, such as innovative plant and seaweed treatments. Their objective: to give energy back to their soil while bottling the fullest expression of each terroir. In the attempt to avoid too much oak influence in their wines, the Truchetets use an unusual barrel called a Harlequin which combines alternative staves of oak and acacia and does indeed have a harlequin look about it. The acacia allows oxygen ingress without adding brute wood notes, effectively halving the oak influence on the wine. To further mitigate the new wood effect, they undergo a very light toasting for a maximum of two hours.

Domaine Truchetet  produce small quantities of pure, delicious and thoughtful wine.
