Variety: Pinot Noir
The Lescure Domaine is among the newer winemaking families, but just as fierce. Chantal Lescure was begun in 1975 by Chantal and her husband Xavier. They claimed 18 hectares of land strewn throughout Chambolle-Musigny in the Cote de Nuits and the Volnay in Cote de Beaune. Today their two sons coordinate the running of the estate and farm from parcels running from Dijon in the north to Meursault in the south. The Domaine takes organic farming very seriously, as they have been practicing full organics since 2000; they're even certified by Ecocert.
“Les Vallerots” is a Premier Cru classified plot situated in a deep valley where it gets very cold in winter and hot in summer. The fruit is all destemmed; oak aging takes place in barrels, about 50% of which are new. The aging usually takes about 18 to 20 months before bottling.
