The Domaine Lucien Muzard Vielles Vignes is composed of fruit from 3ha of vines of 50 years and over, across three parcels—near Chassagne, Maranges and Santenay. The winery uses 60% destemmed fruit and 40% whole bunches. All grapes are picked and sorted by hand. The resulting wine is aged for one year in 30% new French Oak.
Domaine Lucien Muzard produces Burgundian wine of exceptional value and quality across Santenay, Chassagne-Montrachet and Pommard. While the family can trace its wine roots back to the 17th Century, 1995 saw a new generation commence bottling their wines under their own name. Production shuns intervention in the form of chemicals or pesticides.
The reds are tannic and structured. The village-level wines have aroma of almond and strawberry, while the premier crus tend to have more floral bouquets (violet). Notes of chestnuts and prunes develop with age.
