Appellation

The Cotes de Nuits appellation refers to vineyards on or close to the Cote d'Or slope north of the village of Magny-les-Villers while the Hautes Cotes de Nuits appellation covers an area to the west at the top of that slope. It includes 16 complete communes and parts of another 4. Viticulture here is interspersed with other forms of agriculture. The appellation covers red, rose and white wines, although most are red. Appellation status was granted in 1961 and there are no Premier or Grand Cru vineyards in this region.

Estate

Domaine is located in Marey-lès-Fussey, in the high-lying area of Nuits-Saint-Georges. The vineyards extend over 3 appellations: Hautes Côtes de Nuits, Hautes Côtes de Beaune and Bourgogne Aligoté. Created in the early 1960s, Domaine Thévenot-Le-Brun today works 28 hectares of vines, which are all located not far from the winery. After training as a hydrological engineer, Nicolas Thévenot succeeded his father, Daniel, and his uncle, Jean, in 2009. He represents the 5th generation of the family at the helm.
