Domaine Maison Michaut

Domaine Michaut is located in the village of Chichée in north-central France, halfway between Paris and Dijon. It is owned and managed by Maison François Martenot, situated in Vignoles, a village in eastern France, bordering Beune.

The Maison was founded in 1922 when Lucien Gustave Martenot purchased a 10-hectare estate in Savigny-lès-Beaune, dating to 1859. Through the years, more estates were acquired, including Domaine Michaut. In 2015, the Helfrich Family acquired the estate and merged cutting-edge technology with traditional techniques to produce award-winning wines.

Maison François Martenot estate vineyards and its partners embrace the concepts of biodiversity and minimal intervention and all are HVE 3 certified. While the Maison owns and manages 13 vineyards covering a total of 270 hectares of vines, Domaine Michaut covers 15.5 hectares in the Chablis area. The Chablis terroir is renowned for imparting freshness, elegance, and distinction to its namesake wines.

The hilly part of the vineyard is sheltered from the cold winds blowing off the Plateau de Langres and enjoys a microclimate favorable to the grapes. The average age of the vines is 20 years. The soil is clay and limestone. Summers are hot and the winters long and harsh. Sunshine and rain levels vary considerably from one year to the next. Wines are vinified in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks with as little interference as possible.
