Fernand Lécheneaut bought the 22-hectare Domaine in the 1960’s. Based mainly in the Côte de Nuits region, the estate is spread through the appellations of Nuit-St-Georges, Morey-St-Denis, Vosne Romanée and Chambolle Musigny. In addition the Domaine has a small vineyard in the grand cru Clos de la Roche in Morey-St-Denis. 90% of the vines are Pinot Noir, 5% Chardonnay and 5% Aligote.
Domaine Fernand Lécheneaut has been run since 1985 by brothers Vincent and Philippe Lécheneaut, who are admirable vignerons. The traditional estate in Nuits St Georges is considered one of the finest in Burgundy. Once harvested the wine spends 18 months in barrique without any fining or filtration. The wines produced here are superbly crafted, concentrated yet forward and elegant with well integrated oak. Wine availability is limited. Robert Kacher Selections
An earthy and lightly spiced nose of ripe dark berry fruit aromas leads to plummy yet quite serious flavors that are supported by ripe tannins on the firm, dusty and moderately rustic finish. This is an excellent and ageworthy villages that is worth a look. Comments: Outstanding Issue 45
