The Chezeaux domaine was built on the foundations of an estate owned since 1930 by Julien Missery. Bernard Chezeaux acceded to the ownership of the domaine in 1971 selling most of the wines produced there to negociants during his reign. On his untimely death in 1993, his son, Jérome, took over the direction of the domaine. The estate, which is based in Prémeaux-Prissey just south of Nuits Saint Georges, owns approximately 30 acres of vineyards, some of which were brought into play from the family holdings of Jérome’s wife, Pierrette. The vineyards, impeccably tended according to the principles of “lutte raisonnée”, are scattered throughout the villages of Prémeaux, Nuits Saint Georges, Vougeot and Vosne Romanée and include some of the most elite lieu-dits in the zone. His daughter Lyse has now joined him and will carry on the family tradition. The “Les Vaucrains” vineyard is recognized as one of the finest of the entire range of premiers crus in the appellation, and Ceuzeaux’s wine from here is all about restraint, class, and refinement, caressing the palate with an elegant expression of fruit.
