We knew it was only a matter of time before Chanterêves would be “discovered,” as in talked about and chased by U.S wine drinkers beyond us and our customers. But now they appear headed for the big leagues.
For a while, the wines from this micro-négociant husband-wife team of Tomoko Kuriyama and Guillaume Bott were available only with us. But they now have distribution here in New York thanks to the team at Grand Cru, a boutique importer/wholesaler with a legendary Burgundy portfolio in the making that includes producers like the Marquis d’Angerville, Roumier, and Comte Liger-Belair. And now Chanterêves has the honor to be sold alongside those famous names. We are very excited for them!
They’re also getting attention in the press, including in Antonio Galloni’s recent piece on “The Undiscovered Burgundy,” where he refers to what we love about Chanterêves: their “airy, minimalist style that favors freshness and aromatic nuance.”
All of this good news for Chanterêves lines up with the best of news of all: their release from the great 2015 vintage. These beautiful Bourgognes are wines that you can already start drinking to enjoy that “airy” style.
