Domaine Spotlight: Domaine Rapet Pére & Fils
The estate today comprises 20 hectares of land in the villages of Pernand-Vergelesses, Beaune, Savigny-Les-Beaune, Chorey-Les-Beaune, and Aloxe-Corton.
Both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are planted in the various vineyards, which include parcels in three Grands Crus: Corton-Charlemagne (white wine), Corton (red wine), and Corton Pougets (red wine), all situated on the slope of the Corton hill, as well as nine Premier Cru plots.
Vincent Rapet and his wife Sylvette oversee the estate, and Vincent is known for his attention to detail and classic winemaking style. His whites are whole cluster pressed, fermented in barrels (about 20% new oak), and aged in 350-liter barrels; while the reds see an average 15-day maceration period followed by maturation in 228-liter oak barriques (around 30% new wood).
