Product Description

"Bright, light yellow. High-toned, expressive scents of orange blossom, peach and powdered stone complicated by a leesy nuance. Concentrated and penetrating, with lovely saline minerality contributing to the impression of dryness. I picked up a fascinating note of red berries. A bit more clenched on the long finish than the Vers Cras and in need of patience." Vinous 90+ Points

The cellars of the Domaine Cheveau are situated in the hamlet of Solutré-Pouilly in the heart of the appellation of Pouilly-Fuissé. The domaine was established by André Cheveau in 1950. His efforts were followed by his son, Michel, and now Michel’s two sons, Nicolas and Julien are actively running this fourteen (14) hectare estate. The vineyard holdings are predominantly located in and around Solutré-Pouilly but extend as well into Davayé in the Maconnais and Saint Amour in the Beaujolais.

The vineyards dedicated to Chardonnay are composed of the classic clay – limestone composition that provides the perfect ambience to produce the grand wines of Burgundy. The Gamay in the vineyards in Saint Amour, this famed cru in the Beaujolais, is planted essentially in sand, schist and granite.

All harvesting at the Domaine Cheveau is done by hand and the wines are fermented and vinified parcel-by-parcel. Fermentation and aging is done either in barrel or stainless steel tank depending on the particular terroir of each site.

The Cheveau family considers this site (Aux Bouthieres) to be the most prestigious of their holdings. Sited in Pouilly, the vineyards here average thirty years of age. This wine is aged in barrel (about one-third new oak) and undergoes some batonnage. The result is a powerful yet elegant wine of great breed. Six hundred bottles are imported annually for the US market.
