Located in the heart of the Beaujolais Crus since 1993, Domaine des Michelons is a family estate that extends over 12 hectares spread over the Moulin-à-vent and Chénas appellation. Patrick Boulay runs this small estate facing due south on the slopes of the Chénas appellation with his wife, Véronique, daughter of a Juliénas winegrower.
Beaujolais when you grow up it is difficult to leave it, we both have been trained in the hard school of vine work. Our parents, grandparents and great-grandparents... lived and worked in this little corner of Beaujolais. We produce great terroir wines of great finesse from a single grape variety, Gamay. The terroir is a major factor: the Moulin-à-vent is planted on predominantly granitic hillside plots with low yields. Chénas, on a clayey soil, gives a lighter wine with red fruit aromas. We vinify the great classics, resulting from a semi-carbonic maceration called "Beaujolais vinification" which gives our wines a freshness carried by the terroir.
Being a winegrower is above all a profession of passion, a state of mind and a constant questioning in order to extract the best from each harvest. With the climate that gives us many surprises and challenges every year.
