Domaine Chevalier Pere et Fils is a family owned winery in the village Ladoix-Serrigny in the northern part of Cote de Beaune in central Burgundy, in the Cote d'Or. It traces its history back to the mid 1800s and is today run by Claude Chevalier and his family.
The total vineyard holdings are today 16 hectares in several different appellations. Ladoix-Serrigny is at the northern end of the Cote de Beaune, just north of Aloxe-Corton. In fact, Ladoix shares the grand crus Corton (red wines, pinot noir) and Corton-Charlemagne (white wines, chardonnay grapes) with its neighbour Aloxe, the two GCs straddling the communal border. The Domaine Chevalier Pere et Fils makes both white and red Burgundy wines. The white wines include: Corton Charlemagne grand cru, Bourgogne Aligoté, Bourgogne Blanc, Ladoix and Ladoix premier cru, and red wines: Corton le Rognet grand cru, Ladoix, & Ladoix premier cru. They also have vineyards in other villages and thus make Aloxe Corton, both communal and premier cru, Cote de Nuits Village, Gevrey Chambertin and Bourgogne Rouge. They also make the increasingly rare Burgundy wine Passetoutgrain from a blend of pinot noir and gamay grapes.
The cultivation in the vineyard is careful, with in recent decades an increasing attention to soil and plant quality. They practise 'lutte raisonnée', with minimum spraying and chemical treatment. The vinification process in the winery is traditional. After fermentation the wines are aged in wooden barrels in the cellars during a period that varies with the cuvée and the vintage.
