"Tomoko Kuriyama and Guillaume Bott have already released 5 vintages of precise and refined wines, gaining immediate recognition from their peers and wine critics.”
The soils of the Côte de Beaune are covered with limestone scree coming from the top of the hill, red silts deposited in the glacial era, and rocks resulting from the alteration of the underlying geological strata. Brown limestone and stony soils characterise the southern part of the Côte d'Or. At the top of slope, the soils are lean, very limestone, they enrich themselves in clay going down. There are three different hillsides: those of the Corton mountain, those of the Côte des Blancs and those of Chassagne, Santenay and Maranges.
A Passionate Lineage
Chantereves is a 'negociant-vinificateur' set up in 2010 by two talented winemakers Tomoko Kuriyama and her husband Guillaume Bott. They have joined forces in producing a small selection of wines from grapes bought from different vineyard in some of the top estates in Burgundy. Tomoko originates from Japan but has taken her wine education in Geisenheim (Germany) and trained with top producers in well-known estates like Paul Fürst and Friedrich Altenkirch. Guillaume is currently a winemaker in Domaine Simon Bize & Fils and has previously worked at Domaine Etienne Sauzet.
