Claire Naudin Orchis Mascula


Claire Naudin comes from a very long line of winemakers. Her ancestors were tending vines in Burgundy as far back as the 1500’s. In her own words – “Many generations of winemakers have built our domain. One after the other, they knew how to work the vine and express the best of the fruit. Each new generation has been a source of renewal and dynamism, of questioning and new projects.” She took over management of the domaine from her father in 1999. As an advocate for sustainable farming, she completely rejects the use of chemicals and has been vocal about her objection to manipulative methods in the cellar. Although she farms organically, she has not sought out certification. 

This is how importer Erik Mercier describes the Orchis Mascula- “This cuvée comes from three exceptional sites in the Hautes-Cotes de Beaune: En Bully (46-year-old vines), La Grande Corvée de Bully (14-year-old vines), and En Foigery (12-year-old vines). After five days of carbonic maceration the grapes are gently crushed by foot. They avoid pumping the wine to prevent oxidation, a risk when fermenting without any added Sulphur. After ten days on skins the wine is gently pressed into barrel, some of which are new. The wine is bottled unfined, unfiltered, and only with a tiny amount of SO2 for travel when necessary. “
