"Our desire is to produce wines with harmony and balance thus ensuring the greatest possible pleasure for those who discover them" Winemaker Cyrille Jacquelin of Lupé-Cholet
In 1903 in Nuits-Saint-Georges, Alexandre de Mayol de Lupé and Félix de Cholet joined forces to create the House which still bears their name, Lupé Cholet. Their adage « To combine the best of soil, vine and human skill to produce wines of unique personality » remains as relevant today as it was in 1903.
Today Lupé Cholet owns 25 hectares of prime vineyards in the Côte d’Or and Chablis as well as benefitting from long-established partnerships with various wine growers throughout Burgundy. This means that Lupé Cholet is perfectly positioned to offer one of the most extensive and highest quality portfolios in Burgundy.
Only the very finest grapes are carefully selected for vinification in their beautiful 13th Century cellars at Château du Clos de Lupé in Nuits St Georges. Hand-picking, gentle pressing, partial or total de-stemming and cold maceration prior to fermentation are some of the techniques used to impart an elegant, feminine style to their wines. A house style that produces silky, complex wines with seductive ripe fruit aromas that progressively reveal themselves at each stage in their evolution
