Domaine Maurice CHAPUIS is above all a family Domaine.
Around 1850, a winegrower worker from Aloxe-Corton, Pierre Pavelot, owned 1 hectare of vineyard .A few years later, with his brother François, he bought 60 Ares of Corton Charlemagne. Formerly, that vineyard was part of the domaine of the Emperor Charlemagne. He gave it to the Abbey Saint Andoche in Saulieu. Pierre’s daughter married Antoine CHAPUIS, the young teacher of the village.
Antoine had two sons, Eugène and Maurice who undertook to grow the Domaine. Eugène was killed during the Great War; Maurice inherited a house and vines from his aunt Cunisset-Carnot.
Strongly attached to the terroir, he actively participated in the establishment of the AOC laws while working as winegrower. After 2nd World War, his son Louis continued his work and replanted almost all vines.
In 1985, Maurice succeeded his father. As it I usual today, Maurice works also with an oenologist.
In 1990, Maurice married Anne-Marie, brought up in a military family… but also a wine lover! Anne-Marie's management training has brought better organizational structure to the domaine and focused on communication.
She is also part of a committee responsible for organising events for the GJPV, an organisation of young winemakers.
Finally, since 1997, at the request of some of their clients, Anne Marie and Maurice established a wine trading activity
