Appellation

The vines of Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Beaune grow on the south- and southeast-facing slopes of valleys cut into the limestone plateaus at between 290-485m above sea level, between 100-200m higher than the Côte de Beaune, which results in slightly later maturing and harvesting on average around one week later. The soil is made up of formations laid down 80 million years ago during the Trias (sandstone and clay) and the Jurassic (marl and limestone).

Estate

Domaine is located in Marey-lès-Fussey, in the high-lying area of Nuits-Saint-Georges. The vineyards extend over 3 appellations: Hautes Côtes de Nuits, Hautes Côtes de Beaune and Bourgogne Aligoté. Created in the early 1960s, Domaine Thévenot-Le-Brun today works 28 hectares of vines, which are all located not far from the winery. After training as a hydrological engineer, Nicolas Thévenot succeeded his father, Daniel, and his uncle, Jean, in 2009. He represents the 5th generation of the family at the helm.
