“We buy the grapes on the vine, decide on the harvest date and harvest the plot ourselves.
Manual harvest with a first sorting in the vineyard and a second sorting on a vibrating table. 100% de-stemmed. After few days of Cold pre-fermentation, the alcoholic fermentation is done traditionally. We use natural yeasts. No « pigeage », just some pumping over. Then, we do the deviating and pressing. The malolactic fermentation is done in barrels. The ageing is done in barrels (25% of new oak) during 12 months then racked and blended in stainless steel tanks before bottling. We use our own equipment. All is done by gravity .” Morgan Truchetet
Domaine Truchetet is located in the Premeaux-Prissey commune, in the region of Nuits-Saint-Georges and just north of the city of Beaune. It has been in the same family of winemakers for six generations, and recently the baton was passed from father Jean-Pierre to his children Morgan and Julie.
The estate consists of plots with a range of appellations, such as Cotes de Nuits Villages and Bourgogne Hautes-Cotes de Nuits. Morgan and Julie have spent a lot of time and effort in trying new practices to better care for the vineyard, such as plant and seaweed treatments and organic viticulture.
