  • White Beaujolais Villages

    Surface: 56 hectares

    Production in 2014: 3 066 hl / 408 800 bottles

    Soils: The land here is very steep, sometimes up to a 50% incline. The vines which cling to these slopes face east south east on granite and sandy soils with some volcanic sedimentary rock.

    Whites
    : The white wines, produced in small quantities,
    offer outstanding aromatic intensity with their
    floral and mineral notes. The more intense and
    Complex of the cuvees can be cellared for several
    years.

    Characteristics: These ruggedly steep vineyards, facing east south east at between 200 and 500 metres altitude, surround the 10 Crus of the northern area. There are as many terroirs as there are villages…. Falling between the Beaujolais and the Crus, this range can be appreciated young, or after several years bottle ageing.

  • Beaujolais Villages Nouveau Rosé

    Production : 100 hl / 13 000 bottles

  • Red Beaujolais Villages

    Surface: 4 209 hectares

    Production in 2014: 199 321 hectolitres / approx. 26 576 000 bottles

    Soils: The land here is very steep, sometimes up to a 50% incline. The vines which cling to these slopes face east south east on granite and sandy soils with some volcanic sedimentary rock.

    Reds
    : The ‘Villages’ red wines exist in a great diversity of fruity wines with more complexity and structure than the simple Beaujolais. They are harmonious, focussed and well-structured with expressive aromas of red fruits. They can be appreciated whilst young but also possess good ageing
    potential.

  • Brouilly

    Surface: 1 261 hectares

    Production in 2014:
    61 816 hectolitres / approx. 8 242 000 bottles

    Soils: Probably the most complex of all the Crus: half composed of steep slopes of pink granite and half a mixture of clayey scree, “blue stone”, ancient alluvial pebbles and small limestone hillocks.

    Attributes: Absolute finesse

    Aspect: Deep ruby red

    Nose: Aromas of red fruit, plum and mineral notes

    Palate: Red fruit with polished tannins

    Characteristics: This, the southernmost Cru is also the longest, stretching out from the foot of Mont Brouilly and its aptly named chapel, Notre Dame aux Raisins (Our Lady of the Grapes). Full of fruit (plum, small red berries), with some mineral notes, it is perfectly representative of Gamay, and is best
    appreciated in its youth.
