A FAMILY QUARTET
Claire and Pierre manage the Domaine alongside their parents, Maurice and Anne-Marie, by their side. They are happy to rely on their parents’ experience for helping to pass the torch. A family quartet where everyone has their own mission and brings their own expertise.
At the Domaine Chapuis, the estate has been transferred from generation to generation since 1850. Everything started when Pierre Pavelot bought the first vineyard plot of one hectare plus 0.60 hectares of Charlemagne with his brother. Antoine Chapuis, married to his daughter and took over the activity in 1890. At the beginning of the century, the war times made the situation fragile for the Domaine. However, their son Maurice had managed to maintain the activity in 1915 and had been involved in the classification of the Burgundy appellations. At the end of World War 2, his son Louis continued to develop the activity and did important work in the vineyards by replanting almost all the Domaine vines. In 1985, the family history continued with Maurice and his wife Anne-Marie who took over the Domaine before passing on their passion to Pierre and Claire. Who represent the 6th generation.
