Country: France

Grapes: Pinot Noir

Vintage: 2021

Chanterêves is a rising superstar of Burgundy. Founded in 2010 by Tomoko Kuriyama and Guillaume Bott who cut their teeth with Friedrich Altenberg and Simon Bize respectively, the husband and wife team started out as a négoce project, before acquiring 5 hectares of their own vines in 2020. These are ethereal, perfumed and racy wines, the result of low yielding whole bunches of organic grapes, delicate extractions, neutral oak and very limited sulphur.

Savigny Les Beaune 'Dessus De Montchenevoy' is Pinot Noir from an isolated west-facing plot surrounded by forest at 350m above altitude. As with the Chorey, this is made from 100% whole bunches, fermented with indigenous yeasts and and for 12 months in old oak and a further 12 months in stainless steel. Fragrant red fruits with invigorating acidity and tremendous savoury depth on the silky, mouth-filling palate.
