Domaine Chevalier was established in 1850 by Émile Dubois, with Émile’s daughter Marcelle and his son-in-law Émile Chevalier inheriting the estate after the First World War.
Today, Claude Chevalier, the grandson of Émile, heads up the domaine, with his two daughters Julie and Chloé working alongside him. Chloé is now responsible for the winemaking although Claude is still very much present.
Lying on south-easterly facing chalky-clay soils, the domaine is situated right on the doorstep of Aloxe-Corton, in the north of the Côte de Beaune.
Their Ladoix Rouge is fermented in vat and aged in old oak barrels for 12 months, giving lovely soft perfumes and wonderful depth of flavour. This is Burgundy at it’s best, with incredible purity and elegance. A very characteristic ruby garnet in colour, it’s full of soft red fruit perfumes of raspberries and red cherries.
