SKU: B272 / 7631Regular price $1,199.95
Cecile’s great-grandfather, Edouard Jayer, was a cooper in Nuits-Saint-Georges and uncle of the renowned Henri Jayer. Until 2003 they had been leasing out parcels to different producers as Domaine Hudelot-Noellat vines in Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru “Beaumonts” and Clos Vougeot. Cecile Tremblay has almost ten hectares spread across 11 different appellations between Nuits-St-Georges and Gevrey-Chambertin, including the Grand Crus Chapelle-Chambertin and Echezeaux-du-Dessous. She now farms a large part of the Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru “les Feusselottes;” her grandfather purchased this vineyard land with his good friend Dr. Georges Mugneret. The winemaking is very traditional, and the wines see a moderate amount of new wood.
