Chardonnay is the predominant grape variety in the Mâconnais, however it represents less than 3% of grapes grown in the Beaujolais. The particularity of this rare and refreshing white Beaujolais is that it is grown on granite soils. This terroir produces a Chardonnay of great finesse, revealing notes of white flowers and acacia on the nose and yellow fruits, notably mirabelle plums, in the mouth. Appellation size: 600 ha
Grapes are whole-cluster pressed followed by cold stabilization and clarification. Temperature-controlled alcoholic fermentation followed by malo-lactic fermentation.
Of a pale color with green hints, our Beaujolais blanc 2017 reveals aromas of peach, lemon and apricot. It is a supple wine with a fine balance.
