Offered by Mr.Wheeler for only the third vintage and one of the most exciting recent additions to our portfolio, Philippe and Vincent Lécheneaut’s ten-hectare estate in Nuits-St-Georges was created by their father, Fernand Lécheneaut in the 1980s. An extensive range of the finest villages of the Côte de Nuits is produced here; we have picked what we think are the best in 2020 – perfect expressions of pinot noir – rich, sumptuous and elegant, these are modern wines made with minimum intervention that combine purity of fruit with stunning terroir expression.
Les Damodes is undoubtedly among the best, most consistently performing premier crus in our portfolio. Here, the 2020 is a beautifully structured yet velvety red burgundy, with sublime, lifted aromatics, plenty of floral notes to accompany the ripe fruit, and a minerally finish. It’s supreme value, too, offering an upper echelon of Burgundian class at a remarkably approachable price point.
