This domaine was founded in 1930 by Julien Missery. The first Chezeaux to accede to the ownership was Bernard in 1971. His son Jérôme took over in 1993 on the death of his father. The estate is situated in Prémeaux-Prissey: one of those twin villages in the Nuits hinterland where no one seems to stop. They run 12 hectares of vineyard, some of which came as a dowry from Jérôme's wife Pierette's family. The vineyards are worked by "lutte raisonné" i.e. litterally "the reasoned struggle", which means that chemical treatments are only used when absolutely necessary.

This is more backward than the village example. It gives up red fruits, principally cherry and darker things: spice and smoke. Touch of mint here. Rich and creamy instant on entry, then very quickly attracts its structure. This is much more tannic, much more embryonic. Fruit melds to tannin (upright, incisive) melds to acidity, forming a very direct spear that goes on for minutes. Wow. This is quite something. Very very impressive wine, even at this stage. Bowes Wine original note
"Darker and more savoury/spicy than the village Vosne but still with generous ripe fruit, and very slightly floral. Inviting. Succulent and smooth on the palate, with that generosity of fruit making it so easy to taste even now. Rounded yet fresh, persistent. Very accomplished." Julia Harding MW
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
