Today, Pierre (the sixth generation Nageon) owns 11 hectares of prime vineyards that he manages in a naturally sustained manner. He produces three Grand Crus, several Premier Crus and a number of excellent Villages and other regional offerings.

2006 AOC Vosne Romanée Pré de la Folie Vielles Vignes
The wines from Domaine Pierre Naigeon are all produced in very small quantities from low yields to ensure quality. The vineyards are managed by natural means (sustainably farmed) and most of the vines are of 25 – 45 years in age. The wines are bottled without fining and filtration and are true representations of the individual vineyard sites and appellations.

2007 AOC Gevrey Chambertin Echezeaux Vieilles Vignes
"Made from 53 year old vines near Charmes Chambertin. Smoky, coffee, vanilla, cherry, floral, animal, tobacco leaf, compost aromas with a peppery, strawberry streak. Dry, tight, elegant palate with good finesse and acidity, a bit chewy. Orange peel, cherry, strawberry, smoky, menthol, tobacco, carrot top, savoury, animal, compost flavours. Good complexity and length. Fine village wine for the vintage. Needs 2-5 years to soften fully."

2007 AOC Marsannay Rosé
"Very pale orange-rose colour. Tobacco, toasty, raspberry, earthy, floral, minty aromas. Dry, round, elegant, crisp but soft palate. Similar flavours with good finesse on the finish. Good solid style, not too green to go with food."
