Domaine Chevrot in Maranges, at the southern point of the Côte-de-Beaune, is run organically by brothers Pablo and Vincent, they are the leading producer in this appellation which is essentially a continuation of the hillside from Santenay.

The Chevrots vinify and age their reds without sulphur, use low doses for the whites (50mg/l levels of free and 120mg/l total sulphur used by many of the top domaines in the region are a scandal) and ensure that the percentage of recent barrels used never mark the wines unduly, so the wines can be enjoyed in their youth.

Chevrot’s 0.55ha of 45yo vieilles vignes (Old Vines) come from both the north and south end of Santenay (one with iron-rich red soil, and another one oriented toward limestone). Made from 10% whole bunches and aged in 20% new to 4yo barrels
