Domaine Anne et Hervé Sigaut
Côte de Nuits
Hervé Sigaut and wife Anne took over from Maurice Sigaut in 1990, And made important improvements both in the vineyard work and in the cellar.
The Sigauts have been passionately but quietly making gorgeous wines in the tiny village of Chambolle-Musigny for generations. The secret is out and the quiet is now a thing of the past. The estate totals 9.3 Ha, including spectacular old-vine parcels of Chambolle 1 er Crus Les Fuées, Les Sentieres and Noirots – many of which are plowed by horse. Hervé follows the lunar calendar for most activities in the vineyard and cellar, and prefers to touch the wine as little as possible during élévage. The winemaking facility was re-built in 2004, with state of the art equipment including a sorting table, all stainless-steel fermentation tanks, and full temperature control. New oak is kept to a maximum of 40%. The wines are thoroughbred examples of the magnificent terroirs of Chambolle-Musigny.
All the work is done by gravity and the emphasis is on elegant wines with strong signature of the different terroirs.
The main holdings include:
- Chambolle 1er Cru Les Sentiers
- Chambolle 1er Cru Les Fuées
- Chambolle 1er Cru Les Noirots
