Domaine Chaland Jean-Marie

Domaine Chaland Jean-Marie

Domaine Jean-Marie Chaland covers an area of 9.5 hectares, divided into 23 plots located in three communes: Viré, Montbellet and Burgy, covering four appellations of origin: Viré-Clessé (5.6 hectares), Mâcon-Villages and Mâcon (2.22 hectares), Red Burgundy (0.6 hectares), Mâcon-Burgy (0.8 hectares).

The family's wine history dates back to the 1930s, when grandfather Victor Chaland began cultivating vines. His son, Jean-Noël, took over in 1967 and made his first vinified cuvée within the estate. In 2000, Jean-Marie created Domaine Sainte Barbe with an area of 4 hectares.

The vineyard has always been maintained and ploughed without the use of synthetic herbicides. With a view to respecting the soil and expressing the terroirs, the estate obtained Organic Agriculture certification in 2003.

The grapes are harvested entirely by hand. After obtaining a general diploma and a BTS in Viticulture-Oenology, Jean-Marie traveled to other vineyards, including Champagne, Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Australia. These trips enriched his experience before his return to the estate.

At the beginning of 2000, Ewelina, of Polish origin, joined the estate, bringing new skills in the management of the vineyard. These two enthusiasts cultivate the vines and vinify since the 2000 vintage, highlighting the full potential of their terroir.
