Lupé-Cholet is a confidential Burgundy House created in 1903 by Alexandre de Mayol de Lupé and Félix de Cholet. Its wines are very sought after among sommeliers and usually only available in the best restaurant around the world.
With 25 hectares of vineyards across Burgundy and long-established partnerships with wine growers, Lupé-Cholet produces wines from most appellations, with always the highest possible quality. Only the finest hand-picked grapes are selected for vinification and the winemaking team is using traditional techniques such as gentle pressing, partial or total de-stemming and cold maceration prior to fermentation to get the best wines. The founders’ philosophy is still very much applied today: “We want to let the soil and the vintage find their own expression. What we look for in our wines is, above all, harmony and balance ensuring the greatest pleasure for people tasting them.”

Aloxe-Corton is great appellation in Burgundy, offering wines that are more tannic and structured as most reds in the region. This is a superb example with delicious aromas of prune, black berry, blueberry and underwood - and a long, beautiful finish. Stylish, classy and elegant: Yes, we like this wine.
White not treat yourself with this superb bottle? Meursault is one of the few appellations which made white burgundies' reputation, offering classy wines. This one boasts a beautiful golden colour with a complex nose of white peach, lime, apricot and a touch of honey in the background. Palate is structured, buttery and finish is long and beautiful.
