Colour : Intense crimson purple with purple highlights. Nose: Black fruits (blackcurrant, redcurrant), spices, delicate notes of black pepper. Palate : Taste of black fruits, richness, fullness. Imposing tannic structure giving a solid backbone to this wine which is well suited to ageing.

The word of the Winemaker, :

A plot-based cuvée from one of our 11 "lieux-dits cadastral" located in the Brouilly appellation. One of the southernmost terroirs of the Beaujolais Crus. The thinness of the soil brings a lot of hydric stress to our grapes, creating concentration and therefore wines with a lot of accents...

The Wine Estate

Since its birth in 1676, this beautiful wine château built on plans by Jules-Hardouin Mansart and André Le Nôtre - whose main door was carved with a Bacchus, God of wine - has remained a family home. The descendants of the founder, Jean-François de La Chaize d'Aix, looked after the estate for nearly three hundred and fifty years. In 2017, they passed it on to another family, that of Christophe Gruy. Determined to magnify this remarkable vineyard with the greatest respect for nature, he developed, with Boris Gruy - his nephew and Director of Operations of the estate - a daring ecological approach: conversion to organic viticulture, then biodynamic viticulture, recovery of each by-product of the winegrowing activity in a zero-waste dynamic, use of machinery, vehicles and equipment running solely on electricity with the goal of "zero CO2 emissions", and a parcel-by-parcel approach.
