Chauvet Freres

Mr. Chauvet was a well-respected winemaker in the 1970’s, who shared his expertise and knowledge with other winemakers in the Beaujolais and Mâconnais regions in the southernmost part of Burgundy. After he passed away, his passion and craft are being carried on by the next generation of dedicated winemakers.

The rolling hills, small rustic towns and cheery villagers of the Beaujolais paint the perfect picture of French country charm. Although nestled between the more high-profile regions of Burgundy and the Northern Rhône, everything about Beaujolais remains entirely straightforward and unpretentious; and the red Gamay grape from its granite soils its proudest achievement. The grape takes on a lightness that makes it an ideal pairing with almost anything you serve at the table. While the rise of big négociants in the 1980’s highly commercial Beaujolais Nouveau, today’s producers are increasingly committed to quality and authenticity. Aromatic with penetrating fruit, the wines of Beaujolais can turn even the snobbiest of wine lovers into a bon vivant! For added pleasure and pure refreshment, serve with a slight chill.
