ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
Nudant is a term that refers to wine growers, made popular in the 15th century. Today, Jean René and now Guillaume, his son, produce Chardonnay and Pinot Noir across 16 hectares between the Côte de Beaune and the Côte de Nuits, in 20 renowned appellations. Using single variety and single terroir, Nudant produces village level to 1er and Grand Crus, respecting both the quality of the wine as well as the preservation of biodiversity in the vineyard.
The first trace of a Nudant in Aloxe Corton, Guillaume Nudant, dates back to 1453. He was already a vinegrower.
In 1950’s, André Nudant starts to develop the estate by increasing the vineyard size. His son, Jean-René joins the business in 1978 and 25 years later, Guillaume arrives to support and take over from his father.
Each generation is driven by the will to make the best wine possible, cherishing its vineyard – a source of life, joy and hard work.
Always looking forward, each generation instills its own touch and thus writes its own page in the family story.
The vineyard of Domaine Nudant covers 16 hectares (39.5 acres), spread across Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits, offering 17 appellations, from regional to Villages, 1er Crus and Grands Crus.
