This is a production and trading company whose hallmark is creativity. This characteristic, passed on down the generations, is in the Aegerter DNA. Like father, like son. The Chromatiques range is also available for the Aligoté, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

Hautes-Côtes de Nuits
The vines of Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits are located parallel to the Côte de Nuits, from Gevrey-Chambertin to Corton wood. The first mention of this vineyard takes us back to Meuilley in 761, when the Château de Vergy was the head of the Cluniac Abbey of Saint-Vivant de Vergy, which produced Romanée-Conti, La Romanée-Saint-Vivant and Le Clos Saint-Denis wines. The vines underwent a cycle of expansion, linked to economic growth throughout the 19th century, until phylloxera struck. Between 1910 and 1936, almost half the vines disappeared. And since the 1950s, it has taken two generations of winegrowers to patiently and bravely revive the appellation. Current generations are continuing this work and rebuilding the cachet bestowed upon it by the legacy of the Chateau de Vergy and the Abbey of Saint-Vivant. The vines of Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits grow on the slopes of valleys and vales cut out of the limestone plateau at between 275-480m above sea level, mainly facing south, southeast, and southwest. The soil is made up of sedimentary limestone and marl formations from the Middle and Upper Jurassic.
