En Primeur | Domaine François Legros 2019

2019 is the dream vintage to welcome a new producer to our prized Burgundy portfolio, and we are excited to introduce Domaine François Legros. Based in Nuits St George, this small family operation has benefitted from the wonderful success this village has had in 2019.

Domaine Legros spans 6.5 hectares, covering appellations in Nuits St Georges, Chambolle Musigny and Morey St Denis. It is the epitome of a family holding: winemaker François took on the vineyards from his parents and uncle at the end of the 1980s, and in 1999 he acquired yet more vines from his father-in-law. The latest chapter now sees François joined by his two daughters, Charlotte, a graduate of the Lycée Viticole de Beaune, who manages the vineyard, and Laure, who looks after the commercial side of the business. This estate is clearly going places. It sees a proud, happy father guiding the dynamic, talented, ambitious next generation, with impressive results.

Buying Director David Roberts MW visited the domaine in December and was “struck by the harmonious balance of their wines, and the noticeable respect Charlotte attributes to the individual appellations in their winemaking”. The use of new oak is kept to a balanced minimum, no more than 25% for specific cuvées, and bottling is a natural process avoiding any filtration.

This is surely a gem for the future, and we are delighted to welcome this domaine to our range with a small number of select wines.
