Very dark red robe. A nose very seductive characterized with blackfruits and roasted notes. In the palate, the wine is very ripe and fruity, with a nice mineral backbone.
A vineyard perched above the village of Beaujeu, in the heart of Beaujolais and its old capital, is where Jean-Michel started from almost nothing: a farm and vineyard of only 2 hectares left by his father. When the question of succession arose his attraction to the vine and wine was clear. So he converted old farm buildings into a winery and went in search of well-located plots in Beaujolais, Beaujolais Villages, Morgon, and Régnié. All of these years later he is still hard at work tirelessly and with a great vigor thanks to the passion for a job well done, it’s what motivates him everyday.
The particularity of the vineyard is the age of the vines, some of which are centuries old. The vines are a bit like men, they can live to be over 100 and become full of character, the older the vine the more concentrated their juice will become, which is only achieved by the passing of time. The wines therefore have incredible structure and lushness and you can taste their history in each sip! They will also continue to age gracefully in the bottle.
