A nose of blackcurrant and black cherry. Palate: splendid balance, a veritable fruit bomb, with fine, tightly knit tannins, and beautiful length.
Tomoko et Guillaume
Tomoko Kuriyama and Guillaume Bott form the magical duo of Chanterêves. As a couple both in life and in the vineyard, they established their Maison de vins in 2011, an haute-couture négoce based in Savigny-lès-Beaune. Tomoko is originally from Japan, and was exposed to wines from a very young age, having her father passionate by great Burgundy and Bordeaux wines. She left for Germany, where she obtained her oenology diploma, and then directed the winemaking at Weingut Altenkirch in the Rheingau. Guillaume is a pure Burgundian child, he studied at the wine-growing school of Beaune, then worked with Gérard Boudot at Etienne Sauzet Estate (focus on Chardonnay!), then at Simon Bize et fils Estate (complete mastery of Pinot Noir!) where he’s been the cellar master. Their common passion for Burgundy and winemaking led them to embark on the Chanterêves adventure together. Wines with Japanese elegance, German mastery and a great understanding of the Burgundy terroir.
An intense and complex nose, with notes of rose, plum, wild berries, and long pepper. Palate: both supple and concentrated, with beautiful tannic structure characteristic of the appellation, and a long finish. A cuvée made to cellar, it will traverse decades with aplomb if you have patience!
A nose with notes of roasted white fruits, honey, brioche, and hazelnut... The palate is rich and creamy, yet balanced by lovely acidity, and with a long finish. A generic Burgundy that is anything but generic! Worth decanting.
A slightly more rock'n'roll style, with notes of tangerine, honeysuckle, and rosebuds on the nose… The palate is round, powerful, and floral, with tannins that are not overbearing but which structure the wine perfectly.
A nose with notes of black fruit, prune, olive, and violet... A chubby-cheeked delicacy – this is rich, fruity juice with a velvety finish. Pure pleasure! Well worth decanting.
