Domaine Chevalier

Burgundy, burgundy France

Domaine Chevalier was established in 1850 by Emile Dubois. Emile’s daughter Marcelle and his son-in-law Emile Chevalier inherited the estate after the First World War. Today, Claude Chevalier, the grandson of Emile, heads up the domaine, with his two daughters Julie and Chloé working alongside him. Chloé is now responsible for the winemaking although Claude is still very much present at the domaine. The domaine totals 15 hectares, lying on south easterly facing chalky-clay soils, and is situated in Ladoix, right on the doorstep of Aloxe-Corton, in the north of the Côte de Beaune.

The whites have an attractive mealy aroma coupled with forward fruit and the lifted fragrance that typifies great Burgundy, at a relatively modest price. The oak is nicely balanced, with the acid lively enough to lift the nutty fruit on the finish. The wines are fermented in barrel, of which 25% are new, for both the Villages and Premier Cru wines. Racking is carried out in accordance with the lunar calendar because the low atmospheric pressure helps to settle the lees. Claude has less than one hectare of Premier Cru ‘Les Gréchons’ from which he produces particularly fine Chardonnay from 25-year-old vines - the more southerly exposure of this Cru giving extra weight and flavour to the wine. He also makes fantastic red wines, with a Ladoix Rouge fermented in vat and aged in old oak barrel for 12 months, giving lovely soft perfumes and wonderful depth of flavour.
