The stunning Domaine Chapelle is situated in the upper village of Santenay-le-Haut, and commands impressive views over the vines that slope down onto the plain below.
In 2009, Domaine Chapelle became certified as an Organic Winegrower by Qualité France in recognition of the environmentally respectful way in which the vines are cultivated, and the wine is made.
The winery has 20ha of vines, spread from the Côtes de Nuits region in the north, down through the Côtes de Beaune region to Santenay, enabling Domaine Chapelle to offer an impressive range of quality red and white wines. These include wines such as Gevrey-Chambertin, Ladoix, Pommard, Volnay, Meursault, and several Premier Cru’s from Aloxe-Corton, Chassagne-Montrachet, and of course Santenay, as well as some regional Burgundy wines and Bourgogne Aligoté, a refreshing, light white wine to be enjoyed by itself or often mixed with crème de cassis to make the famous Kir.
Over the years, Domaine Chapelle has received many accolades and praise from the leading wine guides and competitions. For example, the Santenay Clos des Cornières, the wine chosen by Gourmet Odyssey, won a gold medal at the 2015 Challenge Millésime Bio organic wine competition. This wine also received two stars in the 2016 Guide Hachette wine guide for its “expressive 2012, full of cherry and spices. Elegant and smooth, with velvety tannins, it has a long and fresh finish. And more recently, the winery won a silver medal for their Santenay Beaurepaire Premier Cru 2015 vintage at the 2018 Millésime Bio organic wine fair, and the 2018 Guide Hachette selected 6 wines and awarded a star to the winery.
