A nose with notes of fresh fruit, and raspberry... Palate: a light, tart, delicate wine, very fruity, very fresh, and perfectly balanced.
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.
A nose of blackcurrant and black cherry. Palate: splendid balance, a veritable fruit bomb, with fine, tightly knit tannins, and beautiful length.
A nose of crushed red and black berries, blueberry jam, and rosebuds ... Palate: clean, precise, with light and luscious tannins. A generic Burgundy that has all the makings of one of the greats!
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 nose of candied lemon, with lovely floral and mineral notes... The palate is as complex as the nose, sharp and once again boasting this beautiful minerality, topped off with a salty finish.
A complex nose, both floral and fruity, marked in its youth by citrus aromas. Powerful and dense palate with a nice acidity that balances the whole. A wine that deserves to breathe.
Nose carried by a ripe fruitiness, notes of grilled almonds, brioche… A powerful and wide mouth, suave, fresh and long, beautiful ageing potential.
Nose carried by notes of black fruits, with a hint of toasted notes. Palate: a lot of purity, thin tanins that perfectly encompass the fruit. Good length, interesting ageing potential.
Nose carried by blueberry, blackcurrant and violet notes. Mouth: depth and delicacy, assertive tanins without being demonstrative, intense aromatic persistence. Final on a touch of sweet spices.
Superb nose with notes of roasted apple, honey and hint of menthol… Ample mouth, nice roundness, balance between fruit and minerality, long saline finish.
