Chanterêves

Guillaume and Tomoko set up Chanterêves in time for the 2010 vintage. Prior to that Tomoko had been making wine in the Rheingau and Guillaume was, and still is, winemaker at Domaine Bize, just up the road in Savigny. They have various contracts in place to buy fruit, focussing mainly on appellations in the Côte de Beaune, although they branched out in 2015 when thye got their eager hands on some 1er Cru Nuits. They seem equally adept at making both red and white wine; their gentle approach to vinification being evident in both colours. Going forward they would like to acquire some vineyards of their own but with prices of land as they are they may have to wait a while. In the meantime they have constructed themselves a smart new cuverie on the outskirts of Savigny which gives them more space and more control to work their undoubted magic. `One of the joys of Burgundy is discovering new producers.[...]This is clearly a producer to watch.` Jancis Robinson, January 2012

    Production was sadly down by about 2/3s, which is a great shame. The fruit is from the Côte de Beaune, around Pommard, which explains the lack of grapes! What there is is punchy and intense with nice bright, earthy aromas and a stylish finish. Drink from now.

    Just what you want from a Volnay; elegant, textured with fresh, red fruit flavours and excellent length. Drink from now.

  • Wine

    Classic style Volnay but with more depth and punch than the 2011, which was very much on the fruit. This has added depth and intensity. Drink from 2016.

  • Wine

    A new addition to the range this year and an appellation very much suited to Guillaume and Tomoko`s winemaking style, which highlights the fruits and freshness of it rather than the austerity. Lots of cultured, juicy red fruits here. Really attractive. Drink from now.

  • This wine sold out quickly last year following strong reviews and it could do well again this year. There is a lot of rich fruit for a St-Romain but the natural stoniness of the appellation keeps everything under control. Some citrus elements come through and the flavours are attractive and long. Drink from 2018.

    This has a delightful delicatesse about it. There is freshness and bite and great consistency through the palate. Attractive subtle nuances, no sledge hammers here!Drink from 2016

  • Wine

    Its quite an achievement to get such finesse and vibrancy into a Morgeot as they have here. The more clay based soil tends to bulk up the wines from this Cru but here we have a wine of purity and biscuity raciness. Drink from 2017

  • Wine

    As svelte as the Pommard but lusher with more sweet flesh and prettiness. There is some structure hidden beneath the overt fruit that will allow the wine to truly blossom over the next few years. Drink from 2017

  • Wine

    This is so elegant for a Pommard, with very sophisticated tannins. Like very few Pommards we have tasted. Very bright fragrant fruits aromas and flavours and a lovely tingly spine. Cultured. Drink from 2017
