Sometimes you know that a new man or woman in a great vineyard will almost certainly produce something special…
Chantereves: This estate has a special place for me; I like and enjoy the wines here. As an old Mosel fanatic, I value the German link that Tomoko Kuriyama brings to the wines. That said, Guillaume Bott is at least equally important, as he has conquered the Corton hill before.
The husband and wife are tremendously nice people, and they deserve success on their journey to create a new estate with its own vineyards.
Tomoko and Guillaume have recently 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 alongside the well-known Maison Chantereves.
The expansion comes with 3 ha of Hautes Cotes de Beaune – 50% chardonnay and 50% aligote – located in the Fussey area on the border of the Hautes Côtes de Beaune and Nuits. Additionally, the estate includes 0.2 ha of Chorey-les-Beaune in the lieu-dit Champs Longs, located at the Chorey’s northern end. Further, Chantereves has acquired 0.85 ha in the Savigny-les-Beaune vineyard Dessus de Montchenevoy, situated north of the village.
Finally – and this is where the plot thickens – Chantereves has found some exciting grapes from a small vineyard in the Corton Climat – En Charlemagne – and they have the opportunity to buy the grapes in a négoce like arrangement.
So let’s dive into Pernand-Vergelesses!
The Chantereves plot of Corton-Charlemagne
Domaine Chantereves got the first grapes from this new venture in 2020 – a very exciting opportunity, as the vineyard is horse ploughed and biodynamically farmed.
Its Corton-Charlemagne is located in Pernand Vergeleses, in the climat En Charlemagne: a small plot on the northwestern end of the hill.
The plot- cadastre no. 168 – is 0.0433 ha and is located in the same area as the Simon Bize plots I recently wrote about. It is in fact a very exciting plot, as the cooler climate on the Pernand side does give an advantage with global warming presumably continuing to increase.
The exposure is quite different on the Pernand side, and ripeness comes later – at least a week later compared to the Ladoix-Serrigny vineyards.
And as an aside, Guillaume Bott is also the winemaker behind the excellent Simon Bize Corton Charlemagne. I feel a treat is awaiting the Winehog!
