Since 2011, husband-and-wife team Tomoko Kuriyama and Guillaume Bott have been making waves with energetic, crystal-clear Burgundies bottled under their micro-négoce label, Maison Chanterêves. We are thrilled to now offer the couple’s hugely anticipated domaine wines made from vineyards recently taken under their care.

Tomoko and Guillaume met in the cellars of Domaine Simon Bize et Fils where the latter worked as cellarmaster. Oenology graduates of Geisenheim and Beaune respectively, they use biodynamic farming and minimal interventionist techniques in their own winery to craft transparent, racy whites and intensely aromatic and juicy reds.

In 2018, the pair took full control of several old-vine Aligoté plots, which they have supplemented with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir sites, mostly in the Hautes-Côtes de Beaune as well as other exciting peripheral appellations. While these bottles are a) available and b) relatively affordable, fans of featherweight and ethereal Burgundy should run, not walk.

'Les Chagniots' – from 100-year-old vines between Ladoix and Corgoloin – shows an intensity of fruit and deep complexity. Rich and spicy, its fruit is laced with tarragon and white flowers and a core of tingling Aligoté acidity. 93 points, Decanter.
