Origin: Plots of vines totalling 1 ha in the commune of Leynes, on the edge of the Pouilly-Fuissé and Saint-Véran appellations.
Grape varieties: Chardonnay
Soil: Clayey, limestone, from the Palaeozoic era.
Pruning: Single Guyot, trained into an arch.
Vinification: The grapes are directly pressed and stored in a temperature-controlled vat, with settling and clarification of the musts prior to fermentation, at a maximum temperature of 18°C. After the malolactic fermentation, the wine is kept in a stainless vat, then bottled during January (around 5000 bottles).
Tasting: The Beaujolais-Villages White is a fruity wine with a crystal-clear colour and a bouquet of white flowers. Nicely rounded on the palate with citrus aromas.
Serving suggestion: Between 12–15°C
The Beaujolais-Villages White goes very well with white meats, fish, and fresh cheeses, or as an aperitif.
This is a wine to be drunk within the year, but it can be kept for up to 2 years.
