Claire Naudin- Burgundian Winemaker Wine Dinner - 28 Nov 2019

Claire Naudin-Ferrand (Domaine Bizot winemaker's wife) took the Domain Naudin Ferrand in 1994 to shape it to her own personality. She believes in sustainable winemaking, and refuses standardization to return to traditional methods. Her wines deeply rooted in Burgundian tradition carry all her sensitivity, and a promise of a better future, including carbon accounting.

Like many winemakers on our list, Claire works organically but is not certified. She believes the organic accreditation can lead to a standardisation of wine, something she is keen to avoid. She avoids chemicals in the vineyard, not only because they affect soil quality in the long-term, but because she feels they are detrimental to the health of vineyard workers.

Even though the estate has been in the family for generations, Claire felt it important to do her own thing growing up. She told us, “You need to want to become a winemaker, not have it thrust upon you,” and after studying geology and agronomy she travelled to Australia and New Zealand before returning home to take over from her father.

She uses natural yeasts, as opposed to cultured ones, and the cellar is gravity-fed, meaning grapes are not damaged before the ferment. No filtration or fining is carried out, as she prefers to rack the wine a few extra times before bottling. This means fewer traces of additives and a more natural wine. In a region that can demand a high price for customers, Claire bucks the trend yet again and offers excellent quality Côte de Nuits at a fair price.
