The Beaujolais extends from Burgundy to the south of Mâcon and covers 50 km to the Lyonnais hillsides and is officially attached to Burgundy's winegrowing industry. The region has a meridional character and is named after the lords of Beaujeu who held the land until 1400. The Beaujolais label mainly produces red wines using whole grapes of the Gamay variety, according to Beaujolais winemaking principles for floral and fruity aromas. A portion of Beaujolais has clay-limestone soil that is well adapted to Chardonnay... That is why some winegrowers began planting white Chardonnay grapes in the 1900s, producing wines with exotic fruit, citrus and even honey aromas depending on the crop.
Grapes are pressed as soon as they arrive at our wineries. Alcoholic fermentation takes place over fifteen days at a low temperature (12 to 16°C) to maintain the Chardonnay's freshness as well as its aromas. We only use our stainless steel vats for fermentation. Exclusively aged in stainless steel vats.
White Beaujolais may be served as an aperitif, with appetizers, with salmon appetizers...
During the harvest, grapes are exclusively hand-picked with care by our grape-pickers.
