Domaine Chandon de Brialles has been owned and managed by the de Nicolay family since 1834. Chandon de Brialles has 13 hectares of vines which encompasses holdings in Aloxe- Corton, Corton, Savigny and Pernand-Vergelesses. Such appellations are often associated with wines that display a somewhat rustic, unpolished style but it is a testament to the de Nicolays' skill that such accusation could never be leveled at their wines.
François de Nicolay is winemaker, aided by sister Claude and the domaine's distinctive cellar master, Kojak. Since 1989 they have practiced organic viticulture, with a third of the domaine cultivated biodynamically. No new oak is used and the average barrel age is seven years. These are very graceful, elegant wines, without ostentation.
