From Les Champs Rammes and La Mort, strange names they have for their vineyards in Ladoix. An even purple without the black centre. This will need the reduction to leave before it can more safely be judged. All in red fruit raspberry and redcurrant. It is very concentrated though, with very ripe red cherries, enough acidity and few tannins. These are certainly not light and easy wines chez Chicotot.**** Rating: 87-89 Jasper Morris - Inside Burgundy (Nov 2021)

Domaine Chicotot

A 7 hectare domaine in Nuits Saint Georges currently run by Pascale and Clément Chicotot, who describe themselves as 'vignerons...simplement'. They say that only natural methods have been used for several generations and the domaine is certified organic.

The various vineyards consist of nearly two and a half hectares of Bourgogne Côte d’Or Pinot Noir, and two plots in the Côte de Beaune:
Ladoix - 50 ares
Aloxe Corton - 1er Cru La Coutière (a micro parcel of under 5 ares)
and in the Côte de Nuits
Nuits Saint Georges - Village - Plantes au Baron 15 ares
Nuits Saint Georges - Village - Aux Saint Juliens 22 ares
Nuits Saint-Georges - Village - Vieilles Vignes (cuvée also bottled as 'Papillon de Nuys') 1ha 16 ares
Nuits Saint Georges – Village - Charmottes 29 ares
Nuits Saint Georges – Village - Aux Allots 66 ares in 5 plots
Nuits Saint Georges – 1er Cru Vaucrains - 24 ares
Nuits Saint Georges – 1er Cru Pruliers - 9 ares
Nuits Saint Georges – 1er Cru Saint Georges - 22 ares
Nuits Saint Georges – 1er Cru Aux Torey - 32 ares
Nuits Saint Georges – 1er cru Les Rues de chaux - 29 ares

Vinification is traditional, the fermentation beginning after 5 to 6 days of cold maceration and lasting around 15 days, with remontage or pigeage as necessary and aged in barrel with a maximum of 25% new wood. SO2 levels are very low. The wines are well-coloured and well-defined and expressive - lots of personality here, with the village wines (which are all on the Vosne side of Nuits) near 1er Cru quality.

The picture shows Clément and Pascale with the graphic design they've used as the label for the old-vine cuvée 'Papillon de Nuys'.
