Domaine Philippe Livera, Cote de Nuits Villages 2021

Get to know: Domaine Philippe Livera, Côte de Nuits Villages 2021

Tasting Note

A very immediate and seductive red with cherry and violet notes, this really stood out to us. There is good concentration and a seam of meatiness and there's balance too. It has intensity with restraint. A very good wine that will be excellent in 3-5 years.

Producer Info

This 8.5 hectare domaine was founded in 1920 by the great grandfather of Damien Livera, who currently runs the property. Prior to Damien taking over in 2007, the grapes (from old vines planted in the 50s and 60s) were sold to the large Beaune negociants. However, since 2007, there has been a total regeneration of the domaine – low yields, a strict form of lutte raisonée, no herbicides, manual working of the soils and a total upgrading of the vineyards and a new winery – and a resultant quantum leap in quality.

In terms of winemaking, after a rigorous selection, the grapes are almost always destemmed and undergo a cold maceration of about a week, prior to a long fermentation – Damien’s cellars are cold and fermentation and malolactic are often prolonged. The wines are matured in barrel for between 11-18 months and bottled without fining or filtration.

The Côtes de Nuits Villages, from vines planted in the 50s and 60s, on the minerally soils of “Preau” in Brochon is gorgeously seductive.

This wine is an En Primeur product and will be shipped later in the year.
