(69) Rhône

My family estate, which I have been cultivating with my wife for more than twenty years, covers about ten hectares. In a perspective of constant evolution of the estate and a renewal of working techniques, we have chosen to pull up some sloping plots to replant them by trellising them. In addition, in order to offer a wider range of products, we also cultivate vines in Burgundy. Thus, we have five different grape varieties (some of which are surprising and undeveloped), which is rather rare in our region where Gamay is king!

Our story

It was in 1986 that I made my first cuvée. A real success, awarded a Gold Medal in Beaujolais-Villages at the Mâcon wine competition. Over the years, I have never stopped evolving and learning to be able to control the production of my wines from A to Z. We therefore produce our wine in a traditional and autonomous way, both in the vinification and in the bottling, in the vat room of Château du Thil, dating back to the 13th century.

Other little stories

Working the vines is first of all a real passion and a way of life! Although it is sometimes difficult to combine this passion with the vagaries of the weather.... The vine is constantly present with us, both in our landscape and in our exchanges with friends, colleagues and customers. For us, the winegrower, unlike the winegrower who only cultivates the land, constantly brings a personal touch to his wine, both when he works his soil and during the vinification process. Following the example of the twelve Beaujolais vintages, each of which has a certain typicity, each winegrower produces a wine in his own colours!

The assumptions that Beaujolais wines have suffered from for years are no longer valid today. Indeed, the constant search for quality, taste and above all the questioning of practices have made it possible to build pleasant, well-constructed and structured wines. It is a real pleasure to taste a Beaujolais-Villages, a Brouilly or a Juliénas during a meal with friends or family! Our diversification differentiates us from many of our fellow winegrowers in Beaujolais. Indeed, although only two of the ten vintages have two, few winegrowers have other grape varieties such as Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Marsanne or Gamaret. It might seem surprising but in Beaujolais we also know how to make very good Burgundies!
