Claire Naudin, one of Henri Naudin-Ferrand’s three daughters, has been in charge of this small domaine based in the Hautes Côtes at Magny-les-Villers, a village that sits astride the dividing line between Hautes Côtes de Beaune and Hautes Côtes de Nuits, since 1994. Claire is relatively susceptible to sulphur and uses the product as little as possible. Though some of the wines are made in an ‘orthodox fashion, the most exciting wines are those which are vinified with whole bunches (all the stems) and without sulphur, though some SO2 is added at bottling to ensure that the wines remain stable thereafter. Claire’s theory, which her wines bear out admirably, is that there is none of the harshness sometimes evident when the bunches are vinified with their stems if sulphur is not used. Instead a magical floral perfume emanates from the wine.

This is our second vintage with Claire Naudin-Ferrnad and the first in the En Primeur catalogue. Don’t be put off by the simple Hautes-Côtes appellation, these are fascinating wines. The 2013 vintage was not an easy on to manage, though the grapes were all picked by 7th October and, as elsewhere in Burgundy, the wines have continued to improve in barrel.
