The Domaine Chevrot, located in the southern part of the Côte de Beaune, represents the authentic family and peasant reality of Burgundy. Active since 1830 in a historic agricultural estate from 1798, the cellar is now managed by brothers Pablo and Vincent Chevrot, both trained at the Beaune Oenological School.
Since 2008, the entire production has been certified organic, but the Domaine is also committed to environmental sustainability, adopting natural practices such as the use of green manure and plowing on horseback.
Chevrot wines are distinguished by an intense style, with an explosive and precise fruit, faithfully reflecting the spirit of the Maranges and Santenay terroir. However, sometimes some “rusticities” can be perceived which derive from a less careful interpretation of these lands. They offer great potential for evolution and more than reasonable prices, embodying Burgundy style and tradition.
100% Pinot Noir
In Burgundy, the Pinot Noir winemaking process follows a strict disciplinary to enhance the characteristics of the grape. The grapes are harvested manually, with selection in the vineyard, followed by pressing and fermentation in oak vats for about 10-15 days. The wine is then transferred to French oak barrels for aging and malolactic fermentation, which lasts an average of 12 to 18 months. During this period, the wine is tasted to monitor its development. After aging in the bottle, the wine is ready for marketing.
Dark ruby color with violet reflections. On the nose there are fragrances of ripe red fruit, such as cherries and raspberries, accompanied by subtle spicy, mineral and wet soil notes. On the palate, the tannins are felt in a decisive but velvety way, creating a silky texture that delicately envelops the palate. The structure of the wine is round and perfectly balanced, with a long persistence of fruity and spicy flavors that extend into the finish.
This wine lends itself perfectly to accompany red meats, aged cheeses and mushroom-based dishes.
