Jules Chauvet

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jules Chauvet (1907-1989) was a wine négociant. He worked from La Chapelle-de-Guinchay in the Beaujolais.

Jules Chauvet was a winemaker and a taster. He also possessed the skills of a chemist, which he obtained at the school of chemistry at Lyon, then with Otto Warburg, with whom he maintained a long correspondence. He worked particularly on yeast, malolactic fermentation and carbonic maceration.

He also was a teacher in winemaking. As such he later inspired the movement of natural wines. He leaves books of quality, including The aroma of fine wine, the text of a lecture he delivered at the wine fair of Mâcon in 1950.
