Domaine Philippe Gavignet 'Les Argillats' Nuits Saint Georges


Aromas of black fruits, minerals, purple flowers. Persistent and deep, with silky tannins; a long, spiced finish. Pair with pork sausages; roasted lamb with herbs.

The style of Gavignet Burgundy “brings back” the profound elegance of Pinot Noir to Nuits-Saint-Georges, an appellation often known for more structured, meaty wines. Gavignet wines are solid proof that Nuits has the terroir to produce elegant Burgundy but that it requires a conscientious winemaker such as Philippe to craft it. What first attracted us to this now fifth-generation estate nearly more than 20 years ago was the impressive pedigree of Gavignet’s vineyards in Nuits.
