Chanterêves – BurgundAsian
Chanterêves, a micro négociant-vinificateur run by two oenologists, was born in Burgundy in 2010. Tomoko Kuriyama comes from Japan and had been trained and worked in Germany, while Guillaume Bott is the Burgundy-born cellar master at Domaine Simon Bize et Fils in Savigny-les-Beaune. They source grapes to vinify their wines. Chanterêves wines are sold in France, but also in England, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Ireland, Germany, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong and from this year the United States.
The Côte d'Or region of Burgundy offers very little chance for an aspiring oenologist who does not come from a wine-growing family and consequentially has no vineyard in possession to establish a "domaine", and this is the case for both. The vineyards of this region being the most sought after and therefore the most expensive in the world, it is extremely difficult, even with economic means, to find a parcel to buy or even to rent. So they created a "négociant" to source grapes from competent grape-growers to make their own wines. They are a winery without vineyards.
Chanterêves is also unique in that it is a synergy of two oenologists from two very different wine regions and career backgrounds. It is the respect for Burgundy’s long-standing wine-growing tradition and culture combined with a progressive mindset that fuels the project.
