The opinion of the sommelier

Only black grape variety grown in Beaujolais, Gamay reveals a very different nature in Beaujolais soils. The wine is produced from old vines, with a deep root system which gives the grape granite’s minerality and an intense level of concentration. Only good Beaujolais can offer such a deepness of fruity aromas. 



Located in the heart of the Pierres Dorées area (Golden Stones in French), facing south-east and west in the magnificent little village of Charnay, vines are planted on granitic soils and are 50 years older than the local average with a plot that will soon turn a hundred ! The very filtering soil gives water to the roots, but not too much, which is good for the Gamay, a lazy grape variety.

lecepage Grape variety

Gamay : the Beaujolais signature’s grape variety since Philippe le Hardi, Duke of Burgundy, banned it from Burgundy in the 14th century ! When we talk about Gamay, it's usually black Gamay with white juice. This grape variety likes the clay-limestone and granite soils of the region. It gives us gourmet wines, round and fruity with intense colouring.

lemillesime Vintage

In Beaujolais, 2016 is a vintage that combines both a high level of maturity and a lot of freshness. Ripeness is balanced by the terroir’s minerality which helps elaborating wines with a lot of energy. Be careful : the bottle will get empty very fast ! 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Maison Jean Loron is one of the oldest and largest vineyards owners in the south of Burgundy, located between Roche de Solutré in Mâconnais and Moulin à-Vent in Beaujolais. The winery was founded at the end of the 17th Century and is now 135 hectares wide, which is quite impressive for South Burgundy and Beaujolais !
