The family makes their wines from their home in Nuits St Georges, just a few hundred metres off the main N74. Their vineyards include no less than six 1er Cru sites, amongst which is the most enjoyable yet relatively unknown Les Busselots white, as well as parcels of Hautes Cotes de Nuits in both red and white.
Decanter magazine's January 2007 list of Key Players in Nuits St. Georges states: "This little-known property is run with enthusiasm by Philippe Chezeaux, who is gradually adopting organic viticulture. No more than 20% new oak is used to age the wines. The style of the wines is structured without any harshness, and they can be beautifully fragrant."
