Production information

Producer: Domaine Jean Chauvenet

The Chauvenet family can trace their viticultural roots back as far as 1680, although the major expansion of this Nuits St. Georges domaine came with the arrival of Jean Chauvenet in 1969. Jean increased the holdings of premier cru and the amount of wine bottled under their own label, increasing the overall quality of the wine. The wines are approachable in their youth but still with all of the power, concentration and complexity that they have always had.

Production note

Grapes are manually harvested. The techniqueused calls for 100% de-stemming and pre-fermentation maceration at 10-12C for 5-6 days in concrete tanks. The wine is vinified at 28-32C for 18-21 days with two cap immersions per day. Following pneumatic pressing, the wine rests in tanks and then matures in barrels before bottling.
