    AOC Beaujolais covers the southern part of the greater Beaujolais wine region while the Beaujolais Villages appellation covers the northern part of the same wine region. A Beaujolais Village comes from the appellation area which includes one of the 10 Beaujolais crus (from north to south, Saint-Amour le Juliénas Chenas, Moulin à Vent, Fleurie, Chiroubles le Morgon, Régnié le Brouilly and Côte-de-Brouilly). Whether in Beaujolais or Beaujolais Villages, red is a blend of the Gamay Noir grape, which finds a great variation in its expressions in the great variety of terroir (altitudes 190 to 500 m, orientations, soils and subsoils). A rarer production exists in whites from the Chardonnay grape variety. The method specific to Beaujolais maceration grapes in vats for 5 to 7 days allows the wine to lose significantly in liveliness and thus is marketable fairly quickly. The Beaujolais Nouveau is the fruit of this method, marketed on the 3rd Thursday of the month of November as Beaujolais Nouveau or Beaujolais Villages Nouveau. The characteristics of the Beaujolais produce wines with a beautiful ruby ​​red color, fresh and fruity (aromas of cherry and raspberry). let yourself be surprised by Beaujolais and Beaujolais Villages or rosé Beaujolais which offer a price / pleasure ratio among the best in France.

  • Juliénas Red Wine...

    The dress of Juliénas is deep and ruby ​​red very intense. The nose of this 100% Gamay wine evokes a world subtly floral (violet, Peony) and fruity (strawberry, currant cherry). Juliénas is one of the Crus Beaujolais to enjoy a great capacity of guard, until 8 or 10 years old. The name Juliénas would refer to Julius Caesar who would have set up a camp in the area during his conquest of Gaul.

The nose of a Windmill offers notes of ripe fruit such as cherry burlat and floral notes that evoke the violet. The evolution of this wine will bring this nose to offer notes of dried rose and Iris then close to 10 years of custody of animal notes of Musk and undergrowth vegetables take over.
