Doudet Naudin Vin de France Pinot Noir 2018
―Burgundy Fine Wine Producer Since 1849
Founded in 1849 by Albert Brenot in Savigny-lès-Beaune, Doudet-Naudin is one of the oldest Burgundy wine Maisons. In 1933 it was acquired by the Doudet family, who have developed and expanded the Maison while preserving its fundamental values: respect for traditions and excellence. Christophe Rochet, the current head of Doudet-Naudin, is committed to maintaining the values of this well-respected Maison while restructuring it.
For almost two centuries we have been producing great wines with a single goal: to reveal and highlight the Burgundy terroir while respecting the values that we hold dear: authenticity and quality.
Domaine Doudet, with over 13 hectares to the north of Côte de Beaune, attests to our expertise. This heritage has great value because of the high quality and diversity of its appellations. The Domaine includes some treasures, such as Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru, “Les Maréchaudes” Corton Grand Cru, “En Redrescul” Savigny 1er Cru, etc.
In total 15 appellations are produced, all located around the iconic Corton mountain and the village of Savigny-lès-Beaune.
Domaine Isabelle DOUDET has always belonged to the DOUDET family. Today the 13 hectares of this estate are managed by Isabelle, the third generation of this family of wine-growers. Passionate about the vine, Isabelle is also in charge of the winemaking, bringing her talent and a characteristic signature to these superb wines.
The whole Domaine is worked with controlled yields and environmentally-friendly pest management methods. The organic, pesticide-free treatments are reduced to the bare minimum. We practice light ploughing to preserve the overall balance of the vineyard and its ecosystem.
The Domaine’s vines tend to be relatively old, up to 70 years old for the oldest! A sign of our rigour and attachment to the vine is the fact that certain plots are, even today, only worked by hand or ploughed with horses.
