About The Wine
In 2012 Maryse found herself a quiet spot amongst woodland and planted a tiny patch of Pinot Noir over pure limestone. The vineyard’s remote location allows for a real focus on biodiversity and the beautiful site positively teems with life. Was the site of a former hunting reserve, hence free of any chemical interference in the soils.
Burgundy that is anything but generic... This is fruity, mineral driven juice, with notes of candied cherry and blueberry. It’s brimming with character and yet very smooth, well balanced and elegant on the palate.
A great discovery, one that will be watched eagerly as this unique project evolves and grows.
About Domaines les Fauvettes
From a tiny cellar adjacent to her home in the village of Uchizy in the Mâconnais, Maryse Chatelin produces wines in tiny quantities. Having worked alongside her husband Alexandre Jouveaux for many years as well as multiple vintages with Jérôme Guichard at Domaine Sauveterre, there was always a yearning for more.
In 2012 Maryse was able to realise her dream, finding a quiet spot amongst woodland to plant a tiny patch of Pinot over pure limestone. The vineyard’s remote location allows for a real focus on biodiversity and the beautiful site positively teems with life.
In the cellar, Maryse displays a real lightness of touch. Fermentations are carried out as infusions with de-stemmed fruit covered in direct pressed juice. The wines are aged in very old, large foudre and bottled by gravity directly from the casks, unfiltered, with nothing added at all.
