Chapuis & Chapuis, Ladoix

Categories: ,

Brothers Romaine and Jean-Guillaume Chapuis come from a long line of vignerons in Aloxe-Corton and grew up among the vines there on the family domaine. Romaine honed his skills working at a number of estates around the world, most notably with Philippe Pacalet, then returned to Burgundy to found his own domaine with brother Jean-Guillaume in 2009. The brothers don’t own any vines themselves, but lease a number of tiny plots in the region, doing all their own farming (organic, of course), everything from pruning to harvest. The parcels and yields are minute, and the cuvées are necessarily mini to microscopic. As small as the quantities are, the quality is undeniable. As Ian Cauble commented, “My advice? Commit the producer to memory and hoard as much of today’s sensational, small-batch burgundy as humanly possible.”
