From a tiny cellar adjacent to her home in the village of Uchizy in the Mâconnais, Maryse Chatelin produces wines of rare finesse.
Having worked alongside her husband Alexandre Jouveaux for many years, in 2012 Maryse found herself a quiet spot in the woods outside Uchizy and planted a tiny patch of Pinot Noir over pure limestone.
Well aware of the effect climate change is having on the environment, the site faces east and is one of the highest in the region at 300 metres above sea level. The vineyard’s remote location allows for a real focus on biodiversity and the beautiful site positively teems with life.
In the cellar, Maryse displays a real lightness of touch. Fermentations are carried out as infusions, the wines are aged in very old, large foudre and bottled by gravity directly from the casks, unfiltered, with nothing added at all.
Her thoughtful, original and strikingly pure expressions of Pinot Noir are truly one of a kind.
Two vintages of Maryse’s De l’Aube à L’Aube and a handful of magnums are now available on Tutto a Casa
