Yummy and exciting wine from Burgundy. A wonderful example of lush, ripe fruit from the most difficult region to achieve it. Silky, red cherry fruit cut with a dash of white pepper and finely balanced with supple tannins.

Wine Makers

Domaine Naudin Ferrand. by Claire Naudin Ferrand

Claire Naudin-Ferrand is a winemaker that refuses to be categorised. She argues with appellation standards, feeling that some of the rules are detrimental to the quality of soil in the Côte de Beaune and, ultimately, to the quality of wine.

 

Like many winemakers on our list, Claire works organically but is not certified. She believes the organic accreditation can lead to a standardisation of wine, something she is keen to avoid. She avoids chemicals in the vineyard, not only because they affect soil quality in the long-term, but because she feels they are detrimental to the health of vineyard workers.

 

Even though the estate has been in the family for generations, Claire felt it important to do her own thing growing up. She told us, “You need to want to become a winemaker, not have it thrust upon you,” and after studying geology and agronomy she travelled to Australia and New Zealand before returning home to take over from her father.

 

She uses natural yeasts, as opposed to cultured ones, and the cellar is gravity-fed, meaning grapes are not damaged before the ferment. No filtration or fining is carried out, as she prefers to rack the wine a few extra times before bottling. This means fewer traces of additives and a more natural wine. In a region that can demand a high price for customers, Claire bucks the trend yet again and offers excellent quality Côte de Nuits at a rare price.

Press Reviews

"Lovely perfumed hedgerow berries. Silky smooth with supple tannins. Red cherry and strawberry flavours. Fresh and crisp with a gentle grip of tannin. Go wild with a game stew of rabbit or pheasant with earthy root vegetables." Liam Campbell, Irish Independent

90 Points - Tomás Clancy, The Sunday Business Post

"Someone described Pinot Noir as a workhorse of a grape and this wine is the result of a good work out."
Pinot Noir from Burgundy, Heaven , 03/03/2014
By Agnes C - Wine Club Member
"To put on your bucket list! Pinot Noir from Burgundy, and particularly this Domaine has a way of bringing you in heaven. Some would say 'have it with food' I enjoy it on its own and each time it never fails to surprise me."
