Tomoko Kuriyama and Guillaume Bott, the maison de vin "Chanterêves", this domaine & micro-négoce reached the milestone 10th vintage in 2019. They have continued fine-tuning of details of wine-making every year, and sometimes they have changed the wine making drastically.

Today, early vintages such as '10, '11, '12, '13 have proved ability of their wine to age and authenticity, and '14 and '15 indicated synchronization of their direction and natural wine movement much clearer, and they have expanded their lineup in '16, '17, '18 including "domaine" wine. The weather favoured their 10th vintage 2019, it's a compilation of their experience for 10 years.

They work with growers closely to obtain ideal grapes(they also work in vineyards), and using biologically farmed grapes preferentially. Wine-making has carried out naturally as much as possible under non-interventional manner. Fermented by indigenous yeasts, new barrels are not used at all. There is no gimmick or makeup. This natural wines are supported by high quality of grapes and their artisanal spirit with sophisticated skills.




[2019 Vintage Report by Chanterêves]

It was a year marked by small crop. Because millésime 2018 brought abundant fruit, this was more or less expected but compounded by the frost and the dry summer (less juice and more solids). The harvest proceeded under excellent weather. Grapes, though little in quantity, were pretty with frequent millerandage. For Chardonnay it was imperative just as in the preceding years to to get on with the harvest quickly. Pinot noir required discerning eye to pick the right dates of harvest. It needn’t wait too long otherwise not only the sugar would increase but would concentrate too quickly which meant jeopardizing balance and elegance.

Fermentation with indigenous yeasts for both colors went agreeably smoothly. Good amount of natural yeast population assured moderately fast and clean fermentation. 2019 is an exciting millésime not only for the reds but also for the whites. There is energy and poise, complexity and density. The reds are also remarkably detailed, balanced and elegant. We must say it is our most favorite vintage of reds to date.

Chardonnay from Pernand Vergellesses la Morand, which is adjacent to the celebrated 1er cru Sous Frétille. This lieu-dit is steep and gravelly with thin top- soil. Marked with minerality and stoniness. Aromas of stone fruit. Mid-body with creamy texture. 1er cru Les Damodes is situated at the border of Vosne-Romanée and diagonally adjacent to Vosne Romanée 1er cru Les Malconsorts. Floral, subtly spicy with dark fruit that evokes cassis. Seductively silky smooth and gorgeous, dense yet lifted. It is probably the best Les Damodes ever Chanterêves has made. Very good aging potential. Made only 2 barrels. Organically farmed Chardonnay from the lieu-dit "Les Chaumes"(this parcel take a part of 1er Cru La boudriote and La Boudriotte can be Morgeot). Morgeots is one of the most important cuvee since the early stage of Chantereves. Complex aromas of stony fruit with white flowers. Pristine and gorgeous as "gourmande" in French. Racy minerality. It gains in complexity as it ages. As in 2014 certainly one of the best Morgeots they've made. Made only 2 barrels.

Chantereves sourced Chardonnay from the Lieu-dit "La Périère" in 2019. Rich fruits, mineral and acidity are balanced in high level. Vineyards of Saint-Romain are located on slopes at high altitude(the highest 420m) and the soil is composed by the blend of limestones and marls. The combination of cool climate and characteristic soil makes wine with mineral and delicacy. - Chantereves has been a specialist of Saint-Romain sisnce the beginning. Chardonnay from Les Hautés as usual, adjacent to the renowned Meursault Vireuils. Complex layers of mineral and rich Umami with vibrant minerality. Medium bodied with long finish. Because Les Hautés is situated directly above Meursault Les Vireuils Dessous, the wine has much in commun with Meursault Village of this side of the hill. Excellent aging potential. Rare Chardonnay from Dezize-les-Maranges "Vignes Blanches"(Planted area of white grape is only 8% in this appellation). Relatively profound soil laden with limestone gravels. Lightly sloped therefore good drainage. Richness and Freshness coincide with good balance in this wine. Mineral backbone and density. Lively with persisting finish. Performing well above its humble appellation.

Pinot Noirs from La Vache and En Mareau. Both lieu-dits, especially "La Vache" is known to be one of the best village cites of Pommard, and En Mareau is connected to La Vache. High altitude, thin top soil and steep slopes make structured and elegant wine. Freshness that is accentuated by the red fruit of griottes or wild red cherry. Despite its alcohol level of 14%, conveys the coolness of high altitude. Soft tannin backup all these factors and make it into one body. We've never seen such emotional and rhythmical Pommard. We remember Tomoko said Pommard is so much worthwhile climat to work on as a winemaker. Mature bottle release Mature bottle release

Pinot Noirs from Damodes is one of the prominent 1er crus of Nuits Saint Georges. Situated at the border of Vosne-Romanée and diagonally adjacent to Vosne-Romanée 1er cru les Malconsorts. Floral bouquet with cassis notes. Beautiful texture with velvety tannins. Energetic and elegant at the same time. Offers immediate pleasure but even better to hold.(Chanterêves) 5 years has passed since we saw last and the Meursault is back in 2018. Tomoko and Guillaume could gain organically grown beautiful grapes from Les Vireuils Dessus and Les Clous Dessus parcels. Soft and gentle touch is common to all cuvées from this vintage. Two-third of the cuvée comes from Marange. One-third is the Chardonnay from "Pierres Dorées", southern tip of Beaujolais close to Lyon which soil consists mainly of fossiliferous Bajocien limestone, comparable to the soil of Chassagne-Montrachet. Aromas of citrus and tropical fruits, mineral and good weight of body, roundness in mid palate with salinity in the finish. Pleasurable to drink after release but surprisingly good aging potential for a "simple" Bourgogne.

Vinification - Vin Blanc (by Chanterêves)

We press the whole cluster grapes with light or no SO2 addition to the must. Fermentation and 12 months aging in 228l, 350l, 400l, or 600l oak barrels. We carefully examine each appellation/terroir and choose the barrel size for each that « we feel right ». Absence of new oak allows « les dentelles » or « details » of each terroir to come to full expression. We work with indigenous yeasts, and the malolactic fermentation also occurs naturally. Due to no-sulpher vinification, the malolactic fermentation usually begins directly after the alcoholic fermentation, slows down in winter as the cellar gets colder, then resumes in Spring.

One big batônnage in the following July-August and directly thereafter all the barrels are assembled in a stainless steel tank for a further aging on the fine lies, this time in the reductive condition (stainless steel tank). This method elevage, first in the barrels - oxidative environment - then in stainless steel - reductive environment is paramount to our white wine making, as there’s little sulphur added during elevage. It’s meant to strengthens the redox potential of our wines.

No fining and occasionally one light filtration of half of the tank. Bottling in January to February after 2 winters of aging in the cellar. We believe this is the best way to stabilize the wines naturally and give them aging potential. Our whites are neither fined nor filtered.

Vinification - Vin Rouge (by Chanterêves)

All of our reds are vinified, without compromise, with 100% whole cluster grapes. If vinification is a process of sublimation of grape’s life and energy, we feel we are best served with whole-cluster to achieve this goal. A minimal sulphur use (10 to 15 ppm) is also necessary for this. We prepare a wild yeast starter using the grapes of each climat 2 to 3 days before the harvest.

Once picked the grapes are brought into a traditional fermenting wooden vats together with the starter and the fermentation starts immediately. There is no temperature control during the skin-contact time or the « cuvaison ». There is also no mechanical pump-overs or « remontage » as we like to avoid pumping in general as much as possible. We wait for « pigeage » or punch downs (only with our own feet) until the end of cuvaison. It will be done once a day and there will be many un-crushed clusters left when we press off.

The alcoholic fermentation then is finished in a stainless steal tank. The malolactic fermentation, as the sulphur dose is minimum or none, happens naturally during the cuvaison or immediately after the press. Our wines without exception are aged in used oak barrels. The wines will rest in barrels until October of the following year and then assembled with their fine lies in stainless steel tanks. The wines in total spend 2 winters in the cellar before bottling. Our reds are neither filtered nor fined.


2014 and 2015 (by Steen Öhman / WINEHOG)

The 2014 vintage marked an interesting change of vinification of the reds, as 100% whole cluster grapes are used for the reds in this vintage and the level of SO2 has also been reduced significantly.

The result was some beautiful expressive and “organic” wines moving style-wise in the direction of both Frederic Cossard and Pacalet … i.e. the combination of low SO2 and a very high percentage of whole cluster. The 2015s are also made with 100% whole cluster grapes and with a modest level of SO2. The result is however quite a contrast to the transparent and lightfooted 2014s, as the 2015 vintage has yielded very ripe grapes – that provides more weight and intensity to the wines. The balance, freshness and transparency is however intact … the beauty of 2015 when they are at their best. This is the beauty of Burgundy .. the vintages can be quite different, and changes the expression of the wines from year to year. While some prefer the delicate and very classic style of the 2014s, others will welcome the extra concentration of the 2015s. I just enjoy the variations and am happy to notice that the basic qualities of the Chantereves wines – purity, focus and detail are intact even in a rich and generous vintage like 2015. For the whites there is little change vinification wise … the 2015 vintage is rich and more weighty and is style-wise quite different from the delicate 2014s.



栗山朋子さんからのメッセージ(原文) 2014年7月

飲み心地が良いだけでなく、亜硫酸に過度に頼ることなく安定して長く楽しめるワインが作れたら何よりと思っています。葡萄を作っているヴィニュロンが腕が立つ人であるのは確かで、彼の仕事に報いるクオリティーのワインに仕上げるのが抱負なので、それが少しでも実現しているなら本望です。




白(シャルドネ100%)はすべて228ℓ容量の小樽で野生酵母で発酵させています。発酵が比較的速めに、理想的には3週間から4週間で終わるように、発酵終盤はカーヴを18度ほどに温めています。マロラクティック発酵も自然任せです。酵素を含む清澄剤はいっさい使用していません。瓶詰め3週間前に粗めに軽く一回濾過しています。若いうちはカチっとしており、年を経て花開いていくような白が好きなので、バトナージュはよほど若いワインが痩せていないかぎり行いません。ピュアなワインが好きなので、今までのところ白には新樽はいっさい使っていません。10年から3年ほど経た樽をシャサーニュの友人から買い取って、洗浄と滅菌消毒をして使っています。

ブルゴーニュ・ルージュとブランの樽熟成期間は10ヶ月ほどで、翌年の収穫期直前に澱引きをしてステンレスタンクに移し、現在まではどのミレジムもクリスマス直前に瓶詰めしています。2011の村名ムルソーは長く閉じていたので、2012年11月に澱引きしました。

赤ワインは古い木製の開放式発酵桶で、やはり自然発酵で仕込んでいます。2012年より醸し中のルモンタージュまたはポンプの使用は一切無しで、発酵最終盤に数回ピジャージュしています。アルコール発酵後はすべて小樽熟成ですが、村名については20%ほど新樽を使い、ジェネリックには新樽は使用しません。マロラクティック発酵も自然任せです。赤については白と同じように清澄剤は使用せず、濾過も行いません。

特に赤ワインについては亜硫酸使用のタイミングを遅らせ、総量も減らしていく努力をしています。そうすることで得られるワインの純粋さ、テロワールのより素直な表現があると感じています。もちろん、フェノレや酸化、バクテリア汚染などのアクシデントを排除する環境下で醸造しています。今年(2014年)より、赤においては、全房発酵を積極的に取り入れて、より重層的でストラクチュアのあるワインを造りたいと考えています。

ただひとつ残念なのは、私たちは原則として原料を買い取って仕込みますが、2011年と2012年のブルゴーニュ・ルージュは葡萄供給農家が見つからず、このふたつのヴィンテージに限っては友人の蔵からアルコール発酵が完了したばかりのワインの状態で購入しました。彼はコンクリートタンクで仕込んでいます。1日2回のピジャージュに2週間強のキュヴェゾンと、伝統的な仕込みです。2013年はやっと彼から葡萄のとして安定供給してもらえるようになり、オートコート・ルージュを格下げして仕込みはじめました。




熟成能力については、同じ畑のものを数年造り続けていないので経験値がないのですが、2011のブランは還元に傾くように造ったのであと5年はフレッシュ感が保てるのではないでしょうか。2012のブランは、今までで一番の出来だと思います。2010年的な果実味と2011年のマティエールを併せ持ったブランで、気に入っています。ヴィニュロンが若手で、2013年以降も彼から安定供給を望めるので助かります。7年から8年、もしくはそれ以上もつかもしれません。2011のムルソーもやはり還元的に造っているので、10から15年は勢いを保つのではないでしょうか。2011のルージュも、今現在は果実のフレッシュ感がありますが、10年ほどで枯れてくるのではと思っています。

合わせる食事については、自宅では良質の食材をシンプルに調理した料理に合わせるのが好みです。ルージュについてはグリルして塩コショウをふったコート・ド・ブッフ、またはグリルしたラム。ブランはグリエしたスズキや鯛に塩をふりオリーブオイルをかけたもの。村名ムルソーは、オマールや海老などのグリエに合うと思います。ムルソーにかぎっては、良質のバターを焦がし気味にしたブール・ノワゼットを甲殻類にソースとしてかけても合います。5年ぐらい熟成した白には、フロマージュも幅広く合わせられます。
