Burgundy (or Bourgogne in French) is a legendary wine region in eastern France. Most of the red wines are made from pinot noir grapes and white from chardonnay grapes.
Burgundy has a higher number of AOCs (84) than any other French region, often seen as the most terroir-conscious. The various AOCs are classified from grand cru vineyards down to non-specific regional appellations.
Chablis is the furthest north-region and produces some of the greatest whites.
Further south lies the Côte d’Or, split into Côte de Nuits, home to many of the world’s finest Pinot Noir wines, and Côte de Beaune where Chardonnay plays a more prominent role, though outstanding red and white are produced throughout.
Further south is the Côte Chalonnaise and the Maconnais with Burgundy’s best priced wines.
In 1903 in Nuits-Saint-Georges, Alexandre de Mayol de Lupé and Félix de Cholet decided to join forces to create the House which still bears their name, Lupé Cholet.
Owners of 25 hectares of vineyards in Chablis and the Côte d’Or, the winery also has long-established partnerships with various wine growers throughout Burgundy. In the vineyards, the best grapes are selected for vinification in the cellars at Château du Clos de Lupé.
Careful selection of the grapes, light pressing, partial or total de-stemming, cold maceration prior to fermentation are the techniques used to imprint the style of the wines.
