The domaine was established by Emile Dubois in 1850 in Ladoix-Serrigny in the Côte du Beaune. Following the First World War Emile's daughter Marcelle and her husband Emile Chevalier inherited the estate. In 1959 their son Georges decided to bottle the entire harvest himself. George's son Claude, the great grandson of the founder, joined the business in 1975 and now runs the estate with his two daughters, Julie and Chloé who is the winemaker. The estate now totals 15 hectares including vineyards in Gevrey Chambertin and also the prestigious Premier Cru Aloxe-Corton. The vines are planted on chalky-clay soils in the north of the Côte du Beaune, and on the edge of the Côte de Nuits, at the foot of the illustrious hill of Corton. which offers a fabulous AOC hierarchy which few other villages can combine. They concentrate on “Estate Wines”, and there is some Aligoté for their Bourgogne Aligoté. Domaine Chevalier take a low-intervention approach, using indigenous yeasts, and although all of their wines benefit from oak maturation, only wines for long-term ageing are matured with a proportion of new barrels. Their white wines are beautifully balanced with a mineral vein, and their reds are full of pure fruit with wonderful depth of flavour and the stamp of their terroir.
