Do you know ?

Burgundy wines are produced mainly with single grape varieties. The leading varieties, the pinot noir and chardonnay grapes, thrive in this region with a semi-continental climate to produce exceptional red and white wines.

Domain and appellation

  • Domaine Lupé-Cholet

    Founded in 1903 in Nuits-Saint-Georges, the estate was born from the union of two men: Alexandre de Mayol de Lupé and Félix de Cholet. Owner of nearly 25 hectares of vineyards in Chablis and Côte d'Or, Domaine Lupé-Cholet has developed a partnership system with several winemakers throughout the greater Burgundy to stock up on grapes.

     

    • Terroir: Vineyard terraces on clay soils, very rich in limestone, on a subsoil composed of a Middle Bathonian stratum Jurassic.

       
    • Viticulture: The grapes are harvested by hand and sent to the vat room as quickly as possible to avoid overheating, rain and crushing berries.

       
    • Vinification: Fermentation maceration for 15 to 20 days in conical oak vats. Soft pressing, then aging in oak barrels for 16 months with 20 to 40% new oak. During aging, the wine is stirred to bring fat and roundness.
