Domaine Chauvenet-Chopin was formed following the marriage of vigneron Hubert Chauvenet to the daughter of Daniel Chopin of Domaine Chopin-Groffier. The two families combined their vineyard holdings, many of them planted with very old vines, with eight hectares from the Chopin side adding to the nine already owned by Chauvenet. Daniel continued to work alongside his son-in-law until 1996, when he officially “retired”. He is still helping out in the vineyards, but Hubert is now solely responsible for the winemaking. Hubert is maintaining the wine style of his father-in-law, crafting classic wines with fine delicate fruit and rich complexity. Hubert uses a little more new oak than before with roughly one-third new barrels used for the Village and Premier Crus and up to two-thirds for the Grand Crus.
