SUSTAINABLE WINE GROWING CERTIFIED HEV (High Environmental Value)
Out of concern for biodiversity and sustainability, we work our vineyards using sustainable winegrowing methods. We do not apply insecticides, our vineyards are grassed, and we ensure that the soil is naturally enriched using organic fertilizers and manure.
This approach allows us to reduce our environmental footprint through a precise and constant monitoring of our vineyard plots throughout the vine’s cycle and until perfect maturation of the grapes.
This evolving process of managing the vines dovetails with our restructuring work and allowed to obtain the HEV (High Environmental Value) certification for our wine growing and winemaking operations.
The production and sale
The Domain’s winemaking craft dates back to the 17th century and the estate currently extends over around 40 hectares in the heart of the Beaujolais appellation and to the south of the Burgundy wine region.
The vineyards have been extensively restructured, the new vines are planted over more than 20 hectares and are combined with vines that are over 50 years old.
This mixture of vines allows us to achieve a better balance by encouraging the various different expressions of our terroirs with mainly granitic soil for the “Cru” i.e. Fleurie (pink granite) and clay-limestone for the Beaujolais, Beaujolais-Villages and Bourgogne.
The wines are very carefully aged on the domain using a method that combines tradition and modernity to bring out the very best from the vines.
This is how we are able to bring you wines that regularly receive recognition and awards for their quality.
THE IMPERATIVE OF QUALITY
Domaine du Mont Verrier always strives to find a balance between structure and the finesse of the aromas in its winemaking.
This work begins in the vineyards with a control of our yields and a selection of our vineyards’ finest plots in order to vinify each separately. It continues in the vat room with a selective sorting of our grapes and careful monitoring of the fermentation in stainless steel, temperature-controlled vats giving us perfect control over the temperatures.
Each of our wines is then aged over several months in either vat or large oak barrels(50hl foudres), half-hogsheads (400l demi-muids) or Burgundy barrels (228l pièces bourguignonnes).
