Guy Chaumont’s family has been making wine since 1640. Guy’s father became a full-time farmer in 1920, raising livestock and growing grapes, and then turned to full viticulture production in 1945.
The winery has been organic since 1965. Its area is about 5.5 hectares (12 acres) and it produces wines from several appellations including AOC Bourgogne Côte Chalonnaise, AOC Crémant de Bourgogne, and AOC Givry.
Certification Ecocert since 1993.
The Chaumont vineyards produce wine from the Côte Chalonnaise appellation in the center of France’s famous Burgundy Region. The vineyard of the department of Saône and Loire is the geographical heart of the Burgundy between the Côte d’or and Beaujolais. His land along the Coast Chalonnaise is the natural continuation of the coast of Beaune.
UPDATE from Guy Chaumont!
“After more than 40 years of service to the vine and to organic wine, the time as come for us to pass on the torch. In Spring 2016 we met Sandrine and Olivier DOVERGNE who were looking for an opportunity to settle in Côte Chalonnaise to produce their own wines. Our primary requirement to continue biological practices was entirely appropriate to them.
They settled near Rosey in Moroges, a neighboring village. We transferred our vines to them in August 2017 so they could vinify the grapes of this beautiful vintage. The 2018 harvest was even more exceptional in quality and quantity. Sandrine and Olivier thus begin with very good cards in hand. We rejoice as much as they do.
We are currently in a phase of supporting these new viticulteurs in their work with the vines, from vineyard to cellar to champagnisation, and many other subtle details related to production and marketing. ”
We will be phasing in Luolle wines and finishing Chaumont wines in Summer 2019.
