For nearly 10 years, Maison Shaps & Roucher-Sarrazin produced and sold wines under two labels: the “Deux Hommes” negociant label and the “Estate” label, from grapes managed by and made exclusively at the winery of Maison Shaps & Roucher-Sarrazin. These wines were produced in small lots and included only the most prestigious Burgundy appellations.
Originally founded in 2004 as Maison Shaps & Roucher-Serrazin, Michael Shaps took over ownership in 2012, changed the name to Maison Shaps, and focused on producing high-end Burgundian wine. Continuing with the same philosophy, Maison Shaps is a small garage-iste winery producing less than 12,000 bottles per year from Burgundy’s finest appellations and vineyard sites (Puligny-Montrachet, Meursault Premier Cru, Les Charmes, Pommard Premier Cru, Les Chaponniers, Vosne–Romanée, and Gevrey-Chambertin to name a few). Michael oversees the leased vineyard sites, producing wines by traditional Burgundian techniques. His objective is to make authentic wines that exemplify the rich heritage of the Burgundian villages.
From natural gravity flow to process the grapes, to native yeast fermentations and minimal filtrations, the style of winemaking at Maison Shaps strives for minimal manipulation of the grapes. Maison Shaps exemplifies the adage “The wines are made in the vineyard,” allowing for the true character of the region to be evoked in the wine.
These artisanal-style wines are exported to the United States where they are sold on the East Coast and via Michael Shaps Wineworks. For more information on our Burgundy operation, please visit http://www.maisonshaps.com/
