Domaine Claire Naudin

The domaine Naudin-Ferrand owns several crus that are well kown by aficionados of Côte d'Or, such as Echezeaux or Aloxe, but the Estate really expresses itself with the regional appellations (80% of the planted surface).
Claire Naudin resembles her wines: sincere and transparent. Her surname is well chosen, one might say.
The winegrower does not like stiff tongued language, or other…
artificial formulas of the wine language.
To make up a speech is not her cup of tea, even less when the subject is winemaking. She prefers to observe, experiment on a single slot, and decide. Biodynamics principles are made to be tried and tasted, not to be implemented blindly.
It aims at accompanying the vine from its roots up, to encourage her to dig for herself the resources she needs into a lively soil. …
Throughout the year, grass grows in the vineyards, so it keeps the local insects and micro-fauna. These micro-organisms are essential for a good oxygenation of the soil, and to prevent erosion.
The winegrower limits as much as possible any treatment against diseases, but also remains free to intervene if needed.
Everything concurs in getting a sane harvest, ripe and already naturally balanced, in order to limit any intervention in the cellar.…

The musts are never cleared, rarely filtered and often vinifed with full clusters. Transfers and blends are processed with the greatest care.
Patience, and a long time lapse are essential. Claire also refuses to block her wines with too much sulfites. Only the necessary dose is used, during the bottling. …
In the glass, the pinots are monsters of grace and delicatesse.
Orchis Mascula (Haute Côte de Beaune Appellation) is made from three slots, located south of the village of Magny les Villiers. Always very expresssive in its youth, it exhales aromas of ripe cherry and fresh rose.
The Combe du Comblanchien gives birth to Viola Odorata, the Haute Côte de Nuits. …
The result is a masterpiece.
What an awesome Pinot Noir! The fruit is silky, vibrant with purity and balance. T
