At an altitude of 320 m, in the heart of the village of Saint Germain Nuelles, you will find the Domaine de Rotisson with a total surface of 20 hectares. The vineyard is made up of Gamay Noir and a little Pinot Noir on 14 hectares and Chardonnay on 6 hectares. The soils are made of clay and limestone, which gives soft and supple wines. On the other hand, our terroirs of Coteaux give more tannic wines and of guard. We practice a reasoned agriculture accredited Terra Vitis since 2008, manual harvest, selective sorting and a vinification based on the principle of the typicity of the soil and the grape.
"The Domaine de Rotisson is located in the southern Beaujolais, in Saint-Germain-Nuelles. The term "rotisson" refers to a small clearing where the ancients planted vines to make wine. The place called Rotisson refers to these ancestral practices, and includes a number of different parcels allowing to produce a plurality of wines and to let the terroir express itself.
The domain was really created after the second world war, and was managed by the Peillon family for several decades, until Didier Pouget decided to buy it in 1998. He profoundly modified the management of the vineyard, allowing for greater mechanization, and decided to reduce bulk sales as much as possible, giving priority to bottle sales.
In 2021, the estate was taken over by two entrepreneurial families, eager to continue the work done so far and with the ambition to take the estate even further, both in terms of quality in the vineyards and in the wines (e.g. organic conversion), and in terms of quantity with the creation of a trading division and a plan to significantly increase the cultivated surface area over the next five years.
Being a winegrower means living as close as possible to nature, having the gift of observing the plant and animal world, and applying this knowledge to the way your vineyard is cultivated. The estate also organizes gatherings, especially of vintage cars, being myself a collector!
