Location of the Vineyards
The Cote de Nuits wines are all fermented at the historic Lupé-Cholet cellars in the centre of Nuits-St-Georges. Estate holdings include both red and white vineyards around the beautiful Château Gris (which belongs to the company), on steep terraces above the town of Nuits, as well as the Clos de Lupé, the original walled vineyard surrounding the cellars in Nuits.
Other estate vineyards are found in Vosne Romanée (just above Echezeaux), Savigny, Aloxe-Corton, Beaune, and Pommard (just below the village).
The Chablis estate "Château de Viviers" is headquartered in Viviers, 12km east of Chablis town. The wines - all from estate-owned grapes - are vinified in Chablis.
Lupé-Cholet take advantage of the modern Bichot installations at Beaune to finish ageing, and perform bottling of all their wines.
Soil
Various complex variants of stony clay-limestone in the Cote d'Or, the classic kimmeridgian chalk in Chablis.
