Jean Chauvenet is the founder of this domaine. Along with his son-in-law, Charles Drag, he built this domaine into one of the most highly respected producers in Nuits-Saint-Georges. The domaine produces (7) Premiers Crus, village level cuvees, and some serious Bourgogne Rouge. 

Nuits-Saint-Georges wines are not soft when young - they typically have robust tannins, dark fruit, and an irony minerality. The estate is working toward organic certification.  Classic Burgundy vinification occurs with 100% destemming and a brief period of cold maceratiion. This is followed by 2-3 weeks of curvaison, the length varying by appellation rules and features of the vintage. Elevage is 18 months followed by bottling with no fining or filtration.
