Domaine Fabrice Vigot Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2015

Grape(s)          :  Pinot Noir

Description     :

"Fabrice Vigot has worked the land of Vosne Romanee since 1990. His own estate – Domaine Vigot – produces silky and elegant wines from covetable plots across both Vosne and old vines in Gevry-Chambertin. Under a sharecropping agreement, he also tends and sources from vines owned by Mugneret-Gibourg alongside Pascal Mugneret. Fabrice, along with Pascal Mugneret, shares in caretaking duties of all of the Mugneret-Gibourg parcels.

Farming for the Vigot wines has been organic and biodynamic since 2010. Vinification takes place with a five day cold-soak in temperature-controlled stainless steel followed by a native yeast fermentation and maceration of three weeks. Vigot does well with old vines, simple vinification, elevage with no more than 30% new oak to offer mineral, pure-fruited and quintessential Vosne, Nuits & Gevrey."

**Given how quickly the Mugneret-Gibourg wines disappear, these should be absolute smash hits (and, to be fair, we expect them to sell pretty quickly going forward).  No reviews, because Vigot doesn’t care, but we don’t either—these are wine to pay attention to.
