Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer

The vines of Domaine Chavy-Chouet have been continuously tended since the Cistercian monks planted them in the middle ages. It was in 1893 when the Chavy family inherited the land and it has been in the family ever since with Romaric Chavy the seventh generation to run the winery.

Romaric’s training in wine began at birth, but his true studies started when he was eleven at a boarding school focusing on wine.

Since then he has worked in wine around the world before returning home to take over the winery in 2006. His approach combines tradition and modern technology with great attention to detail and a close relationship with the vines. Over the last 30 years eliminating the use of herbicides, in lieu of sulfur and copper to protect the plants and the land itself. Plowing is preferred to permanent grassing to encourage the roots to go deeper into the soil, and harvesting is done by hand. Minimum intervention is used in the vinification process, using gravity to fill the barrels.

Domaine Chavy-Chouet currently covers 15-hectares in some of the most beautiful villages of the Côte de Beaune: Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, Saint-Aubin, Volnay and Pommard. Romaric produces wine from 14 A.O.C.'s (80% White, 20% Red). Following his father’s methods, Romaric does not fine or filter his wines, instead allows their purity to shine through.

Wine has been produced in the Rhône Valley for over 500 years, with some of its vineyards being amongst the oldest in France. Syrah rules over the south with a mix of Mediterranean grapes, while in the north, the two stars are Hermitage – grown on an imposing granite hillside above the town of Tain and best put away in the back of the cellar for a decade – and Côte-Rôtie, a star appellation made famous by Guigal's single-vineyard wines, yet also home to dozens of fine producers as yet less well known. The sheer hillsides overlooking the river have to be terraced to make production possible.

 

St Joseph and Cornas also provide wines of weight and worth, but the best source for good value is Crozes-Hermitage, a satellite appellation which has come alive in the last few years with the arrival of young blood.

 

The river valley widens out south of Valence into Côtes du Rhône country on the windy alluvial plains and the lower slopes of the hills. It is a most imposing sight during the cold, clear, blue skies of Mistral conditions. The best of the wine villages of the Côtes du Rhône have been promoted to their own appellations - Vinsobres, Vacqueyras - close in quality to the better known Gigondas.

 

The king of the southern Rhône is Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Here the galets roulés, rounded rocks from the ancient river bed, provide the context for gloriously rich red wines that are redolent of the heat and herbs of the south, and enhanced by the complexity which comes from blending several grape varieties. Thirteen are permitted in all, but Grenache usually dominates, along with Syrah and Mourvèdre in support. A fine vintage needs eight to 10 years cellaring for best results.

 

If your taste runs to fuller, richer, relatively exotic white wines, then perhaps a white Hermitage or Châteauneuf-du-Pape from the Rhône Valley would suit better, or else a marvellously perfumed, heady Condrieu - headquarters of the Viognier grape.
