Qui sommes-nous ?

Domain Jean Chauvenet

Christophe Drag

" Le respect de l'expression de chacun des terroirs pour des vins différents. "

"Our vocation is to bring out the delicacy and freshness of the Pinot Noir and its subtle aromas."

The Jean Chauvenet domaine is a perfect example of the Burgundian family-run holding: restricted area (10 hectares); numerous appellations (9 in this case) from among the best-known of the Côte de Nuits; and a single grape variety, the Pinot Noir. Together these make for red wines of incomparable texture, delicate and silky.

The domaine is run by Christophe Drag and his wife Christine who work to a single golden rule: respect for the expression of each terroir to yield a range of different wines.

Since 1994 the domaine has turned to low-input  cultivation which aims to minimise the use of chemical treatments, and is working towards certification.

Since 2003 the vines have been grassed-down. The aim is to limit soil-erosion and temper the soil's natural vigour in the interests of restricted yield. Christophe Drag also practices rigorous disbudding which leads to better aeration of the grapebunches and hence a healthier crop come harvest-time.

Picking is done by hand, the date depending on the grapes being fully ripe as regards phenols and tannins.
In this way wines from the Jean Chauvenet domaine develop the delicacy and elegance which are the hallmark of fine
wines, and the structure which presages long keeping qualities.

THE DOMAINE

Lying in the Nuits-Saint-Georges district a few metres from Vosne-Romanée, the Jean Chauvenet domaine grows nearly ten hectares of wines which include no fewer than 7 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er crus.
With some lying in the north and some in the south of the appellation, they represent a whole gamut of different wines.
Vinification, followed by 18 months' elevage in oak barrels (around 20% new wood), preserve the marked character of each terroir, the wines being subjected to neither filtration or fining.

THE WINES

Christophe Drag's wines differ in temperament according to whether they come from the north or south of the Nuits-Saint-Georges district.
The former, from near Vosne-Romanée and grown on well-drained - 1er Cru Les Damodes, for example - are delicate
and very feminine. The second group such as Les Vaucrains, growing on rocky clays, are more structured, denser, have a longer keeping potential.

But all alike exhibit that complexity and black-fruit quality that the Pinot Noir develops on such magnificent terroirs. This cuvée of Nuits-Saint-Georges is archetypical of the Côte de Nuits wines - silky, delicate and yet generous.
