‘Champs Chenys’ is directly downslope from grand cru Charmes-Chambertin; Raphet’s rows of vines are located in a small “notch” carved into Charmes (that is, vines are surrounded on three sides by grand cru terroir). Vines range from 35 to 110 years old. 

Raphet wines are a Burgundy lover’s Burgundy. While the wine’s color in the glass is a delicate ruby, aromas and flavors surprise with their forceful intensity. This contrast often catches the uninitiated off guard, yet it is part of the seduction of these limited and highly sought-after wines. Raphet Burgundy is handmade from field to bottle, with a rhythm and method that hasn’t changed in more than four generations. Pinot Noir vines at the estate are on average very old, with many surpassing 100 years.
