If there is a winemaking category for clean, transparent and terroir driven Burgundy made by a wife and husband, micro-negotiant team than Tomoko Kuriyama and Guillaume Bott of Maison Chantereves would be the super stars. Actually they are basically super stars anyway!

Here is how our colleague, John Truax, explains things (he has visited Chantereves more than anyone):

"The immaculate and precise winemaking at Chanterêves is inspired by old wisdom and new techniques. Both Guillaume Bott and Tomoko are trained enologists. For whites they press the whole cluster grapes with light or no SO2 addition to the must. Only indigenous yeasts, natural malolactic fermentation. No fining, sometimes one light filtration of about 50% of the final blend. Red wines are all 100% whole cluster fermented. No mechanical pump-overs. Punch downs are done with their feet. The wines are bottled in January or February after two winters in their cold cellar. Fermentation is in old oak and the wines are aged in used oak barrels. Rarely are any new barrels used."
