Chanterève-8-1

Maison Chanterêves is the micro negociant project of winemakers Tomoko Kuriyama and Guillaume Bott.  Japanese by birth, Tomoko studied at the respected wine university in Geisenheim, Germany, becoming estate manager at the renowned Friedrich Altenkirch (once vintner to the Kaiser) in the Rheingau. In France, Tomoko and her husband Guillaume, winemaker at Simon Bize, have teamed up since 2010 to craft remarkable wines from a cellar tucked under a modern house in Savigny-lès-Beaune.

The couple buys small quantities of organic grapes from various vineyards in Burgundy. They employ a high percentage of whole cluster fermentation and a very low dose of SO₂.  These are wines full of energy but very much in the “natural wine” aesthetic: straightforward expressions, reflecting a fresh-faced purity without artifice, embellishment or pretension sans maquillage.
