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 several Premier Cru’s from Nuits-Saint-Georges, Aloxe-Corton, Chassagne-Montrachet, and of course Santenay, as well as some regional wines like Hautes-Côtes de Beaune 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 numerous accolades from the main wine guides and wine magazines, such as the Revue du Vin de France, who rated its Santenay red wine 2014 14.5-15.5 in its selection of the best 1500 wines of the year for the 2014 vintage. The magazine wrote, "Its intensity and maturity stand out in this blind tasting. Ripe plums come through, and it is already accessible on the palate." The winery won a gold medal at the Millésime Bio 2015 organic wine fair for its Santenay "Clos des Cornières", the wine chosen for the Gourmet Odyssey Wine Experience. This wine is also referenced in the Guide Hachette des Vins de France 2016, receiving two stars for its "expressive 2012 vintage of cherry and spices, consistent, suave and smooth on the palate. It has good length that is fresh and full of life."
