Selection of the best hills, the disignation Beaujolais-Villages is produce North of the Beaujolais vineyard, in the crus area. The delimitation marks the transition between the clay-limestone of southern Beaujolais and retains only granitic soils.
Our Plot :
Purchase of grapes on the village of Emeringes, in a place known as le replat Devavre, and the wine-making process in our fermenting cellar.
Location : The Emeringes plateau is orientated to the North East and the constituion of the soil is very well suited to the Chardonnay grape variety. This richness made by the clay and old colluvium enables a slow and homogeneous maturation. Located between Mount Remont and the foothills of the high Beaujolais, the village of Emeringes only produces Beaujolais-Villages.
Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil and Subsoil : Stony soil of old alluvium
Surface : 50 Sq m
Exposure : On a plateau, rows oriented North East
Plantation : 50 Sq m in 2012
Harvest and winemaking
The grapes were manually harvested in 15 kilos open boxes on August 31th, 2020.
The grape harvest, at maturity and healthy, made it possible to realise the wine making process in optimal conditions.The wines were casked early September and matured in barrels for 12 months. They were then assembled to be bottled in September 2020.
Chardonnay, the king of grape variety in Burgundy, finds its place in the Beaujolais with a more singular expression, close to the fuit. The attack is frank and delicate, leaving a nice freshness at the end of the mouth.
