Located in the Beaujolais Crus area, the vineyard of Château Emeringes produces wines of the Julienas and Beaujolais-Villages appellations on slopes with a very favourable exposure (South-East) and an average altitude of 350m. We practise sustainable viticulture and have many old vines growing on very beautiful terroirs of granite origin. Our cultivation methods (choice of plants, pruning, manuring...) allow us to control the yield and to obtain quality grapes. Our grapes are then vinified with the greatest care in modern facilities that respect the traditional Beaujolais vinification (semi-carbonic maceration).

Our story

I took over the family estate 35 years ago and I have endeavoured to develop direct sales in bottles. This orientation naturally directed me towards a constant improvement in the quality of our wines, which is essential when one is in permanent contact with demanding customers. We work with this in mind from the pruning of the vine to the bottling, including rigorous and precise pruning, reasoned fertilisation with regular additions of organic matter and lime (control of acidity and development of the soil's microflora...), vine management with optimal aeration of the bunches and pruning with a good height of foliage to obtain good maturity. We have carried out quite a lot of experimentation in these areas, particularly in terms of fertilization and pruning. At planting, the choice of plants (rootstock and graft) is made with qualitative criteria (earliness, quality) and not quantitative. We have also carried out numerous oenological trials (yeast comparisons, initiation of malolactic fermentation, height of juice in the vat, de-stemming...) in order to orientate ourselves towards the techniques that best correspond to the type of wine we wish to produce.

Other little stories

Being a winegrower is the permanent search for improving the quality of one's wine, even under difficult conditions. This quest for excellence involves both viticultural and oenological work. These 2 aspects are complementary and essential to obtain a great wine. It is in the difficult years that one can judge the quality of the winegrower. It must implement a large number of positive factors ("little extras") which, when added together, make the difference and produce a noble product. Being a winemaker means having this dynamic state of mind to constantly improve one's wine. And, given the number of factors involved, you can spend your whole life there... I have been making wine since I was 19 years old and I have always been admiring and strongly impressed by the fermentation and vinification of a cuvée. And, for almost 40 years, I have kept that passion alive. I am also a great wine lover and I like to participate in wine tastings of wines from my region, other regions or other countries .
