We have 2 excellent offers from Pierre Naigeon of Gevrey-Chambertin, Burgundy. Their Fixin “les Herbues” AC Vielles Vignes and Bourgogne Vielles Vignes AC is on offer as part of a soiled case consignment we bought in specially to save you money.
These 2004 vintage wines are part of a damaged box consignment we bought in specially to save you money. The wine is in perfect condition but the boxes and some labels may be suffering some light damage akin to being stored in a damp cellar. This cosmetic damage is reflected in the price which is a bargain for this Burgundy.
Pierre Naigeon Bourgogne AC Vielles Vignes shows rich, ripe, expressive blackberry fruit with upfront fruit mingled with complex and earthy tones. Great depth and concentrated fruit tones.
Pierre Naigeon Fixin Les Herbues AC Vielles Vignes is aged 12 months in oak barrels to create a deep, ruby red wine with a nose showing complex raspberry and blackcurrants with a slight floral edge. The palate is balanced and extremely elegant.
Good Friday and at work trying to sort a new layout for the personalised wine labels … getting there slowly but surely …
