Domaine Vincent Ledy
Nuits Saint Georges, Cotes de Nuits, Burgundy, France
The first impressions of Vincent are his energy, passion, and good humor. He and his family reside in Nuits-Saint-Georges, where the winery is located. Created in 2007, the first wines released in 2013. While Vincent does not come from a winemaking family, only through his extended family, he worked many years for the respected Domaine Lecheneaut.The Estate is only 3.5 hectares producing eight different wines, with vines in Bourgogne Rouge, Chorey-Les-Beaune, Savigny-Les-Beaune, Hautes Cotes-de-Nuits, Nuits- Saint-Georges AC, and 1er Cru Les Porrets St. Georges. Since its inception, Vincent tends the vineyards organically. In 2018, he started the process of being Ecocert certified by 2021. In the vineyard, everything is done traditionally, including by horse to plow his oldest vines (planted in 1935) in Porrets St. Georges. In the winery, Vincent uses whole cluster on most wines. He never inoculates, chaptalizes, or acidifies and adds no sulfur during vinification (only at bottling). He despises new oak, all the barrels are between 2 and 6 years old, and the wines are all aged for 18 months with no soutirage (unless necessary). Few winemakers have the absolute talent to produce such cerebral and intense wines with concentration and purity. They are raw, profound, classic Burgundy. Already compared to Madame Leroy, or Confuron-Coteditot, his natural wines are authentic “Vins de Terroir” with power, depth, structure, and high-toned ageability.Martine’s Wines is the U.S.A. exclusive importer for the wines of Vincent Ledy.
