When Claude Chevalier took control of the family cellars in 1994 the first thing he instituted was a new mindset. He began a renovation in the cellar and an emphasis that the wine is made first and finally in the vineyards. In 2000, Claude made a radical change - he hired the well know Greek oenologist, Kyrakos Kynigopoulos, a.k.a. "the vineyard magician."
Claude's wines reflect the four generations of expertise and meticulousness that has gone into the maintenance of his family vineyards. From the Domaine's total holding of 37 acres, Claude makes 14 village and 1er cru wines. Claude also presides over the Confederation of Burgundian appellations and vignerons.
