Writing Domaine Chantereves does give me an especially cheery feeling, after having visited Maison Chantereves many times over the past years.
This is an estate that has a special place in this reviewer’s heart, as I like and enjoy the wines and furthermore the people behind this estate – Tomoko Kuriyama and Guillaume Bott. They are tremendously nice people, and if anyone deserves the success of creating a new estate with its own vineyards, it is they.
So I was very pleased when I learned that Tomoko and Guillaume have expanded their domaine by 4.7 hectares, adding to the small aligote parcel they acquired a few years back. With 5 ha of their own vineyards, they can now proudly use the Domaine Chantereves label beside of the well-known Maison Chantereves.
The expansion comes with 3 ha of Hautes Cote de Beaune – 50% chardonnay and 50% aligote – located in the Fussey area on the border between the hautes cotes of Beaune and Nuits.
Additionally, the estate also will include 0.2 ha of Chorey-les-Beaune in the lieu-dit Champs Longs, located at the northern end of Chorey.
Furthermore, Chantereves has acquired 0.85 ha in the Savigny-les-Beaune vineyard Dessus de Montchenevoy, situated north of the village.
Congrats to Chantereves!
