Pierre Nezhon is a member of the fifth generation of winemakers living in Gevrey-Chambertin, although his ancestors on this land were engaged in farming and viticulture in the early 18th century. For the first time the idea of producing their own wine Fernand Nezhona visited in 1890, when due to an epidemic of phylloxera in the wine market was depressed, and he was not able to implement prepared to sell barrels. Having organized a small production, entitled Maison Naigeon-Chauveau, he managed together with his wife Alice to turn it into a thriving business. In 1947, management of the economy took the grandson of Fernand and Alice - Pierre, who further expanded the area Naigeon-Chauveau.

Young Pierre Nezhon became a broker for the sale of wine in 1991, and around this time he began work on a small area of vineyards (about 1 hectare) in Bon-Mar Shams-Chambertin to him by the family. Over the years, he has increased the area of the domain to 11.5 hectares due to new acquisitions and leasing of land.
