The Beaujolais & Burgundy wines from the Pierres Dorées (Golden Stones)

The “Pierres Dorées” represents this very particular terroir of South Beaujolais of which approximately 50 villages can claim the “complementary geographical name”.

It is a hard, ocher-golden limestone because it is loaded with iron oxide. It contains a multitude of marine fossils. In our vines mainly entroques and gryphées, oyster fossils dating back 360 million years.

This very draining terroir leaves little aromatic imprint on the vine except a certain salinity on the finish on the Chardonnay. As for Gamay, it expresses its primary aromas of berries and red fruits wonderfully on this terroir; redcurrant, raspberry, wild strawberry and red cherry are exalted on the golden stones. They are enjoyed fresh, like the white ones, as an accompaniment to cheese with a flowery rind, Greek vegetables, stuffed tomatoes or lasagna.

The Beaujolais-Villages & Burgundy wines from the marl and volcanic soils

The place called “Monts Verriers” peaks at 363mt and stretches over a varied terroir of hard limestone, marl, volcanic rocks, blue schist, and even granite, already foreshadowing the microclimates of the ten famous Beaujolais wines.

We are here in the heart of the Beaujolais-Villages appellation, the terroir then extends towards the North, and extends over volcanic rock, the famous “Blue Stones” at the foot of the Côte de Brouilly. On this terroir rich in diversity, our Gamays in the Beaujolais-Villages appellation and our Pinot Noirs in the Burgundy appellation are expressed.

They are powerful and concentrated because our vines, which are quite young, are well exposed to the sun. Here the terroir marks the grape variety with a peppery and smoky note representative of this place.

The wines are structured, with character, suitable for a charcuterie platter, grilled meat or a simmered dish. They improve in the cellar.

THE Cru Morgon

Dominated by Mont du Py, Morgon is the largest of the Beaujolais crus, with 1000 ha and its altitude peaks at 310mt. The famous Côte du Py is composed of blue stones and decomposed schists. “morgon” means “rotten rocks” in old dialect. It is on this crumbling soil of decomposing rocks and shale that the most powerful and fleshy wines of the Beaujolais crus are made, with this particular aptitude for aging and its notes of kisched cherries and eau de vie.

Two types of terroir, both from old vines, planted in cups, are represented here with a very distinct character; powerful and “cut” for keeping in the case of the Côte du Py Morgon, finer and more refined in the case of the Morgon from the place called Janin. On these altered terroirs, of blue stones or granites, our old Morgon vines express themselves.

They are intensely aromatic with an unparalleled aging potential of 5 to 10 years, they accompany grilled and cooked meats, refined dishes and powerful cheeses.

THE CRU Moulin-à-Vent

The Moulin-à-Vent appellation dates from the 15th century. Classified as a historic monument, it represents the prestige and pride of the appellation straddling two villages, between Burgundy and the Rhône.

This vintage is distinguished by a racy bouquet. Its intensity results from both the poor and demanding granite soils as well as the powerful and regular winds to which the mill bears witness.

Gamay is constrained here: it produces small berries and produces concentrated and complex wines. The differences in geology, exposure and soils are extremely diverse; since the 19th century, more than 71 different terroirs have been identified, as many identities of the wines produced.

The grapes for our cuvée come from soils that are both granitic like the climat “Le petit Brennay”, clay-limestone and marl “Les Petits Bois” or from alluvium from Piedmont “Bois Pontdevaux”. On these altered terroirs, the old goblet vines produce a fleshy and round wine, powerful with melted tannins and aromas of black fruits, spices and violets. Structured and elegant, this wine is aimed at palates who love great wines, whether young or softened by time.

THE Cru Fleurie

Fleurie is said to be the most “feminine” of all the Beaujolais crus. History does not say whether it is because of its very particular terroir of pink granite or because of the famous chapel of the “Madonna” which dominates the appellation at 425 m.

In fact, these wines are certainly the most floral and delicate among the ten Beaujolais crus. The appellation has a particular geography. It is backed by a chain of ridges: Col du Fût d’Avenas, Col de Durbize, Col des Labourons, Pic Raymont.

Two climates, two orientations allow us to develop two vintages with different characters: A blend of grapes from the “Fonfotin” plot, deep soil of pink granite, sloping towards the Presle stream and those from the “La Tonne” climate gives a mineral and floral Fleurie, typical of the appellation, character enhanced by a vinification in stainless steel vats.

The single-plot cuvée made from only grapes from La Tonne, a climate of old vines, on hillsides on the south-eastern side of the Col des Labourons, has the particularity of aging more slowly and produces wines of finesse with floral aromas of iris and violets and red fruits. We age this cuvée in 400 l barrels, which gives it a particularly spicy character and very supple tannins which go wonderfully with a roast with apples and chestnuts, or a whole salmon with a crust of herbs and roasted vegetables.

The Saint Amour, A patchwork of plots and soils ​

The Cru Saint Amour

A patchwork of plots and soil characterizes this appellation located in Saône et Loire, the most Burgundian cru because it is the most northern.

Here, the diversity of micro-plots from which the grapes come to produce the “fusion” cuvée brings all its richness to the wine. Very diverse localities such as “la Pirolette” and its blue stones, “Tête de Bonnet” and its weathered granites, “Le clos” and its alluvium soils from Piedmont or the “Aux Pierres” plot mainly made up of debris from clay, quartz and flint.

Fusion produces a tender wine, full of finesse, fruity, floral and spicy, above all very balanced and supple, evolving towards complex tertiary notes over time, strangely reminiscent of the “Pinot Noir” grape variety from nearby Burgundian lands.

Also designed for aging (between 4 and 6 years), it can be drunk as an aperitif in spring and goes wonderfully with pumpkin purees, veal risottos, tomato crumbles or pork tenderloins.
