New Producer in Vosne-Romanée – Domaine Benoît Chevallier

With his debut in the 2019 vintage, Benoît Chevallier helms a young estate with a significant history in Vosne-Romanée. The vineyard comes from family lands worked for three generations. His grandparents acquired their vines in the 1930s, and his father, Maurice (who also served as the longtime mayor of Vosne-Romanée), continued winemaking from the 1960s until his retirement in 2008. After a decade of leasing most of the family vineyards to an organic winemaker, Benoît decided to pursue winemaking full-time and now cultivates his four hectares of vines.

🍇 All farming is organic and the goal is to respect the soil and vines in order to harvest the best from them.
🍇 Intimately involved with all aspects of production, Benoît maintains his estate with a watchful eye, doing all work by hand.
🍇 Work in the cellar aims to impart complex structure to the wines without overt influence. Some new types of oak are being introduced.
🍇 All of Benoît’s production levels are minuscule, fitting for wines that are crafted with such a personal touch.
