About Domaine Cheveau
A 14 hectare family estate run by Nicolas Cheveau, his brother Julien and wife Aurelie. The land is worked mainly by hand and horse and the family do not use chemicals in the vineyard, choosing to promote biodiversity. You can see an array of grasses and wildflowers amongst the vines which, as well as looking beautiful, help the health of the soil and mitigate against soil erosion.
This wine hasn't seen any oak, aged in stainless steel the resulting wine has a fantastic mineral backbone and ripe orchard fruit notes. It's had 11 months ageing on the lees and this softens the edges and brings a background nuttiness. Wonderfully fresh Chardonnay from one of our favourite producers
