Domaine Michel Cheveau is a 14 hectare family estate run by Nicolas Cheveau. His cellars and vineyards are immaculate and are clearly run with meticulous care. Although small, the cave is full of large oak barrels, new and old, barriques and small capacity stainless steel vats.
The wine is a blend from three of the best Chardonnay parcels from Solutre-Pouilly and Fuissé with ideal clay and limestone soils. The vines range from 25-40 years old.
The wine is a pure expression of the appellation, offering floral, honeyed, white peach characters, juicy fresh pineapple and a warm nuttiness that exudes charm and character. This is a wonderful Burgundy and immensely satisfying.
Cheveau is the master of subtlety, his wines remain elegant and restrained, never overdoing the oak which so many other producers do in a quest for more complexity. His Trois Terroir is a true reflection of the terroir of Pouilly Fuissé with just a hint of French oak to frame it. Sadly only tiny quantities are produced, but his are wines that should not be missed.
