Domaine Chaland Jean-Marie

Domaine Chaland Jean-Marie

The Domaine Jean-Marie Chaland covers an area of 9.5 hectares, spread over 23 plots located in three municipalities: Viré, Montbellet, and Burgy, thus covering four appellations: Viré-Clessé (5.6 hectares), Mâcon-Villages and Mâcon (2.22 hectares), Bourgogne rouge (0.6 hectare), Mâcon-Burgy (0.8 hectare).

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

From the beginning, the vineyard has been maintained and plowed without the use of synthetic herbicides. With a focus on soil preservation and terroir expression, the estate obtained Organic Agriculture certification in 2003.

The grape harvest is entirely done by hand. After obtaining a general diploma and a BTS in Viticulture-Œnologie, Jean-Marie traveled to other vineyards, including in Champagne, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and Australia. These journeys enriched his experience before returning to the estate.

In early 2000, Ewelina, of Polish origin, joined the estate, bringing new skills to vineyard management. These two passionate individuals have been cultivating vines and vinifying since the 2000 vintage, showcasing the full potential of their terroir.
