Domaine Petitot

The village of Corgoloin is just to the south of Nuits-St-Georges and the beautiful buildings that make up the Domaine Petitot have been in the family for eight generations. Despite a long history in the region, it is only the past three generations that have made wine here and today it is Hervé and Nathalie Petitot that run this 9ha family domaine. Viticulture is lutte raisonnée and yields are kept low, so the fruit here is always of great quality and this show in the wines – the Côtes-de-Nuits Villages  wines in particular are amongst the most concentrated of their appellation. It is rare to find under the radar domaines working in headline appellations like Nuits-St-Georges, but following a stand-out performance in a Decanter Magazine tasting panel that our buyer was judging on, we acted quickly to  secure an allocation of their wines.

There are two wines from the Côtes-de-Nuits Villages appellation: a rich and creamy white that is 100% Chardonnay and a red from the ”Monts de Boncourt” vineyard that sits in a prime spot in Corgoloin. Finally, there is ”Les Poisets” a silky smooth Nuits- St-Georges from a vineyard that is  just yards from Les Saint Georges  itself. The grapes are destemmed and fermented in tank before they spend 12 months maturing in barriques, 8% of which are new for the Red 2010 Nuits-Saint-Georges  Les Poisets
