Domaine Lécheneaut 2021

January 2023

When I visited in November 2022 to taste the Lécheneaut 2021s, it was Vincent’s son Jules who led the tasting as he becomes increasingly involved in the running of the domaine as Vincent’s brother Philippe steps back a little. Jules has already made his mark by adding some further new parcels which may show up in new wines in the years to come. We say it every year but, the Lécheneauts are so connected to their vines and vineyards and this focus was as significantly contributory in 2021 as it has ever been. The Lécheneaut 2021s show the engaging fluidity that I have mentioned elsewhere. These wines are all about balance and harmony, with the quality of the fruit for which this domaine is now so well known clearly evident throughout.


Domaine Lécheneaut, Hautes-Côtes de Nuits 2021

£135 per 6 bottle case in bond

Richard O’Mahony, Atlas Fine Wines, November 2022

Good depth of fruit here in a cooler style. The palate is caressing and harmonious and this will be a pleasure to drink within a couple of years. Drink 2024-2027

 

Domaine Lécheneaut, Morey-St Denis 2021

 £240 per 6 bottle case in bond

 Richard O’Mahony, Atlas Fine Wines, November 2022

Spicy notes interlaced with clean, pure, healthy blue and red fruit notes. Cool and restrained. The palate shows a lovely mouth-watering touch and a sense of ease with itself. Good harmony and length. Drink 2026-2035

 

Domaine Lécheneaut, Nuits-St Georges 2021

 £210 per 6 bottle case in bond

Richard O’Mahony, Atlas Fine Wines, November 2022

Good concentration on the nose – a promise of breadth, which materialises on the palate with a fine depth of cherry and red fruit held together by clay-derived mineral power that is perfectly balanced with the fruit core. Drink 2026-2035

 

Domaine Lécheneaut, Nuits-St Georges, Aux Chouillets 2021

 £240 per 6 bottle case in bond

 Richard O’Mahony, Atlas Fine Wines, November 2022

The Chouillets takes the level of concentration up a notch, the old vines really making their mark in 2021. The palate shows a deep fruit core and a sense of power, though the harmony is magnificent. Lovely balance and length. A very fine Chouillets from the Lécheneauts. Drink 2027-2035

 

Domaine Lécheneaut, Gevrey-Chambertin 2021

 £255 per 6 bottle case in bond

 Richard O’Mahony, Atlas Fine Wines, November 2022

The Lécheneaut Gevrey shows a beautifully healthy red fruit nose and similar fruit core on the palate. There is also a subtly expressed mineral persistence here, notably more stony in nature. The clean fresh fruit shows a graceful flow across the palate and the balance between fruit and structure is very fine. Drink 2027-2035

 

Domaine Lécheneaut, Chambolle-Musigny 2021

 £270 per 6 bottle case in bond

 Richard O’Mahony, Atlas Fine Wines, November 2022

Scented red fruit nose. Cherry blossom. The palate has a real floral touch, beautifully clean and elegant while a white stone grip towards the finish brings focus, structure and energy. Gracefully textured and showing great poise and direction. Drink 2026-2035

 

Domaine Lécheneaut, Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru, Les Bourniques 2021

 £420 per 6 bottle case in bond

Domaine Lécheneaut, Nuits-St Georges 1er Cru, Les Damodes 2021

 £360 per 6 bottle case in bond

 Richard O’Mahony, Atlas Fine Wines, November 2022

While the 2021 Damodes has less of the exotic opulence of the last few vintages, it retains a fine concentration of silky fruit and a balanced density at its core. The palate is all clean, ripe red fruit presented in a flowing, harmonious style that captures the silky character so typical of this Vosne-styled Nuits. Beautiful balance and texture. Drink 2027-2037

 

Domaine Lécheneaut, Nuits-St Georges 1er Cru, Les Pruliers 2021

 £360 per 6 bottle case in bond

 Richard O’Mahony, Atlas Fine Wines, November 2022

The Lécheneauts’ Pruliers always shows a tightly-wound mineral core which makes its presence felt in the long stony finish. This year is no different. There is a poise and tension running through this Pruliers from start to finish. The fruit shows perfect ripeness and a spicy dimension. The finish shows a freshness, together with the typical mineral persistence. A very successful Pruliers. (Again.) Drink 2028-2038


As always with Burgundy releases, we are unable to sell leading Grand Cru and Premier Cru or wines from particularly sought-after domaines in isolation – we cannot buy them from the domaines that way ourselves and we are aware that demand is sure to outstrip supply. However, instead of running a complex system of allocations, we do aim to confirm requests as soon as we are able to do so or to highlight where we are unable to assist. To request a specific wine, please contact any member of the sales team on +44 (0) 20 3017 2299. You can also reach Simon Larkin MWRichard O'Mahony, and Laura Hollingsworth by email.
