Tech Sheet / POS
Domaine Chapelle et Fils is situated in the heart of Santenay, the southernmost village of the Cote d’Or. The Domaine dates back to 1893, when the Chapelle family first purchased plot of land in both Santenay and Chassagne-Montrachet. Today Jean-Francois Chapelle and his wife Yvette run the estate. In total the Domaine covers 20 hectares, the vast majority of which is planted with Pinot Noir. The domaine has a production of 110,000 btls annually. Only 5% of this is exported out of France.
Santenay has a unique terroir. Situated at the south edge of the cote de Beaaune one would expect it to be white wine country. However, the vignerons of Santenay devote themselves almost exclusively to Pinot Noir. In Santenay limestone substrate is covered by a sandy loam.
