Naudin-Ferrand - Wine Craftswomanship
The 2014 Harvest at the Domaine Naudin-Ferrand
The 2014 team is the largest ever! It is the consequence of my choice to ferment without sulfite, which means we must harvest manually. Thanks to everyone: without this great team, what would I do? The reds are casked (sunk in barrels for maturation), and the white finish fermenting. It is now confirmed: 2014 will be a very nice year, with fruity and balanced wines. But white will be rare, due to the drought in the month of June... We are again count our bottles carefully
The 2014 harvest pictures are on line We started with the Damodes on September 12, then Echezeaux.
Claire Naudin is Foodex 2014 "Best Female Winemaker"
During the Foodex 2014 in Tokyo, Claire Naudin was awarded the "Best Female Winemaker" for her Bourgogne Hautes-Cotes de Beaune 2011, Bellis. The wine also received a Diamand Trophee for its double gold medal. This award is also a recognition of the role of Mr. Kinoshita, our importer.
The 2013 harvest has ended on October 11, thanks to a wonderful team: my deepest thanks to the braves who harvested with us in cold and rain to save our season. It was worth the effort: the wine is very promissing. Congratulations to all of you. Below, the traditional picture taken on October 7. You will find more in our gallery.
Claire Naudin took over the Domaine Naudin Ferrand in 1994 with her own vision. She is a strong believer in the principle of wine making that is respectuous of the environment and the local ecosystems. She refuses standardization, prefering a traditional craftswomanship approach. Here you will find traditional Burgundy wines, full of emotion. As woman and a mother she also wants to work for the future, with a carbon neutral winemaking approach.
