When Eugène Chevalier established his company in Charnay-lès-Mâcon, near Mâcon, in 1920, he knew that he faced a veritable challenge: the traditional method was already fully successful in Burgundy, in Nuits-Saint-Georges and Rully, but he still had to bring effervescence to the Mâcon region.
Chevalier threw himself into it heart and soul. And he succeeded perfectly.
This touch of distinction is accompanied by the typical south Burgundy character.
The Maison Chevalier also proudly produced sparkling wines using a natural method, whose extended vat ageing allows the expression of the quality of the base wines, the fullness of their maturity and brightness of their aromas.
