Chapuis Macon-Mancey Rouge


Domaine François Chapuis is a small family run winery located in southern Burgundy. The estate has been managed by winemaker François Chapuis since 1997, who is aided by his mother and father, Josette and Jean. François farms 13 hectares of vineyards just west of Tournous within the lieu dit of “Les Cras”. 50 years ago these holdings were used for mixed-agriculture, but today they are fully planted to vine. Farming according to organic principles, François hasn’t used any insecticides or pesticides for 10+ years. Four times a year the vineyards are ploughed to allow the soil to oxygenate, and to generate microbial life. In the cellar François makes his wine traditionally, utilizing partial (25%) barrel ageing.

The Domaine Chapuis Mâcon-Mancey Rouge is made from 100% hand-harvested Gamay. The grapes were harvested from vines spread across 5 parcels: “Biovois”, “Les Laines”, “Les Cras du Haut” and “Les Roches” (2 plots). The vines are farmed by hand without the use of pesticides or herbicides. Once in the cellar the grapes are destemmed and placed into a vat, where they are cooled prior to fermentation. Fermented over 5 to 7 days, this is the stage where the wine develops its lovely aromas and character. Once vinified, the wine is pressed and aged for a short period in vats.
