    Rosés
    : Delicate and mouth-watering, the rosés offer a lovely gleaming colour. On the nose they are fragrant and aromatic, expressing a wide range of red fruit and citrus fruit aromas. Fresh and appealing, they are wines of pure enjoyment.

    Characteristics: This is a regional appellation whose production zone covers all the 91 communes of the Beaujolais vineyards, making it the largest of the AOCs.

    Reds

  • Beaujolais Villages Rosé

    Surface: 54 hectares

    Production in 2014: 2 405 hectolitres / approx. 320 600 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.

    Rosés
    :
    Like all Beaujolais wines, the rosés are made
    from Gamay. Limpid and brilliant in colour,
    they are expressive and full of fruit characters.
    Intense, fruity and aromatic, they are round fresh
    and silky.

    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.
