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.
