"In the northwestern corner of Burgundy, east of Chablis bordering on the Champagne-Ardenne region, is the Tonnerrois. The area is centred around the town of Tonnerre and its 5400 inhabitants.
The Canal de Bourgogne cuts rights through the area, from the northwest to the southeast. This is the canal that connects the Saône to the Seine, and therefore also connects the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea via the Yonne and Seine to the Saône and the Rhône. Construction began in 1775 and was completed in 1832. In the past the canal was important to the local industry. Today tourism has taken the place of the industry.
The Tonnerre vignoble is both young and old. The vines were present already during Roman times. From the 10th century and onwards the monks began to develop the vignoble. At the end of the 19th century the Tonnerrois vines covered more than 5000 hectares. Then phylloxera almost entirely wiped out the vineyards in the area. Today, after extensive replanting during the last decades, it covers 240 hectares and in 2006 it received an appellation of its own - Bourgogne Tonnerre.
Restoration of the vignoble first began in Epineuil in 1970, led by mayor André Durand. In the mid-1800's this village four kilometres north of Tonnerre could count 350 hectares of vines.
In his book on the Yonne from 1882 Malte-Brun lists the most renowned climats in Epineuil and adds that the white wines from Côte de Grisey can compete with the most respected wines of the Côte d'Or." Bergman's Bourgogne.

Dampt Bourgogne Chevalier NV label
The 2016 vintage of Chevalier d'Eon, made from 100% Chardonnay, is a stunner! It is made entirely in stainless steel tank which accentuates the freshness of fruit. There are ripe notes of apple, pear, and lemon meringue on the nose. There is a great balance of fruit, minerality, and acidity on the palate. The fruit is definitely the dominant flavor-- ripe Anjou pear and beautiful flowers, blended just perfectly with the subtle clay and limestone minerality. The acidity maintains the liveliness and vibrancy of the wine on the palate from its intense start to its long finish. This would be your perfect pairing for oysters, seared scallops or baked white fish.

James Suckling Tasting Report: This is an extraordinary merlot with such purity and focus. Flowers such as violets and hints of orange peel. It is full-bodied yet incredibly energetic and structured.
