Daniel & Simon Chotard

Simon Chotard

“Simon Chotard is the great revelation of Sancerre on the last four vintages. Out first of the class of school oenology from Toulouse, he gives to wines of the family domain wines a precision and a depth praiseworthy. Here vintages are of a high level and are good value for money” – La Revue du Vin de France

The Chotard family have been making wine for over 200 years, since 1789 and now the reins are passed to Daniel’s son Simon, the latest in the dynasty. Domaine is in Crezancy-en-Sancerre – West of the appellation. Simon stopped using herbicides and pesticides. 2017 was 100% organic practices. Plan to go full Bio in 2019 vintage. Main expositions of vineyards are South, South East, South West. Vineyards age from 5 years to 70 years old.
