Chavy-Chouet: Two families, two villages on the Côte d’Or linked by a love for terroir over seven generations… After six years at a specialist winemaking school and with plenty of experience in winegrowing and vinification around the world under his belt, Romaric has given the estate a makeover. He has been running it single-handedly since 2006, watching over his 15 hectares of vines with a rigorous eye. He is proud of his roots, and his approach combines rigor, tradition, and innovation.

2016 was a fairly early year, after a wet winter. The sun shone during budburst but the cold returned in April, making life hard for us. Two nights of below-freezing temperatures meant we lost 30% of the harvest to frost. This caused a lot of anxiety amongst winegrowers and was a big blow to morale so early on in the year. The sun returned and held tight for a large part of the season. The grapes that survived benefited from a great deal of attention and ripened in moderate temperatures until 22 September, when the harvest began.

A relatively late harvest in cold weather, followed by ageing in cellars that had also cooled down, meant that fermentation lasted for several months and it took a long time for the wines to reveal their true characters.
