About the Wine Maker
Chantal works all her wines in the same manner. She says that each vineyard just yields different material to work with. So, each of her wines tastes a bit different to reflect the various vineyards where she owns vines. Furthermore, she likes to let the winemaking process happen naturally. She feels that great fruit from great vineyards will make world-class wines if the winemaker simply oversees the process. And her approach works. Chantal’s wines all have a similar style — powerful structure marked by finesse and elegance.
A lively and well structured red burgundy. The supple, round tannins and fruit are well balanced. Plenty of volume and body.
