Domaine Cheveau is 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 grandsons, Nicolas and Julien are now running this fourteen-hectare estate. The vineyard holdings are predominantly located in and around Solutré-Pouilly but extend 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.
Harvesting 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. Fruit for this wine comes from a single-vineyard site is in the southernmost village (Chaintré) in the Maconnais.
Notes of citrus fruits (lemon, orange, grapefruit) with lively acidity, fruit blossom aromas, and excellent balance.
