Earth Month Spotlight: Domaine Chanzy

Post image

If you’re a wine enthusiast, you’ve likely heard of the Burgundy region of France, known for producing some of the world’s most prestigious wines. Today we’re highlighting one of our favorite organic vineyards in the region: Domaine Chanzy. Founded in 1974 by Jacques Chanzy and now owned by a group of investors led by Philippe der Megreditchian, Domaine Chanzy is known for its sustainable and environmentally-friendly practices in both the vineyard and winery and holds High Environmental Value level 3 certification. The winery uses cover crops, natural pest control, and has even implemented a rainwater harvesting system to reduce its environmental impact.

Domaine Chanzy produces a variety of wines, but one standout is their Mercurey Les Caraby Rouge. After fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine is aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. The result is a wine with a deep ruby color and aromas of cherries, raspberries, vanilla, and spice. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied with smooth tannins and a good acidity that gives it a fresh and lively character.
