Red Wines:

Red grapes are hand-harvested and undergo rigorous manual sorting to ensure only the best fruit is used. The entire harvest is destemmed and fermented in stainless steel and concrete tanks using indigenous yeasts. Gentle infusion techniques and careful temperature control during a 15-20 day maceration period help preserve the elegance of the Pinot Noir. The wines are aged for 15 months in barrels, with an average of just 2% new oak to maintain the vintage's delicate character. Light fining with low doses softens the tannins and integrates the oak influence.

White Wines:

White grapes are also hand-harvested and carefully sorted before pressing in pneumatic presses. The juice undergoes settling in stainless steel tanks, followed by fermentation in a mix of oak barrels, acacia barrels, and ceramic tanks (Clayver). This approach enhances the freshness and purity of the fruit while combating the effects of climate change. Like the reds, the white wines are aged for 15 months and receive light fining to enhance their texture and balance​.

Domaine Les Astrelles wines are characterized by classic Burgundy elegance, with wines exhibiting pure aromas of fresh fruits and a beautiful concentration. Spicy notes add to the vintage's complexity, promising excellent aging potential and a refinement.

Domaine Les Astrelles, with its blend of traditional practices and innovative techniques, is set to make a significant mark in Burgundy. The estate's dedication to organic farming, meticulous vinification, and the creation of elegant, expressive wines positions it as a standout producer in the Côte de Nuits.

Domaine Les Astrelles

Introducing the Domaine Les Astrelles, a remarkable addition to the prestigious Burgundy landscape. Situated in the heart of Gevrey-Chambertin, the estate, previously known as Domaine Pierre Naigeon, was acquired in 2019 by Isabelle and Jean-Marie Chapier, both of whom bring a unique blend of medical expertise and passionate dedication to winemaking.

Isabelle, a doctor of pharmacy, and Jean-Marie, a medical biologist, settled in Gevrey-Chambertin after an initial winemaking venture in Bergerac ignited their passion for viticulture. Jean-Marie is an "investor who wants to get involved," assembling a dynamic team that reflects his energetic approach, while Isabelle oversees the administrative and accounting aspects of the operation​.

Since taking over, the Chapiers have revitalized the 14-hectare estate, focusing on organic farming and meticulous vineyard management. The team includes cellar master Julien Millet, who joined in April 2020 and brings extensive experience from his tenure at Comte Georges de Vogüé.
