Fruity nose of wild raspberries underscored with notes of nutmeg, baking spices and wet stones. Generous and aromatic on the palate with supple, mellow tannins Expressive, generous and enjoyable right now, this is a perfect wine to enjoy with a slight chill.

Domaine du Château de La Chaize is among the oldest, most historic estates in Burgundy’s Beaujolais region. Cared for by the same family for nearly three and a half centuries, the estate has been passed on to new owners, the Gruy family, who are equally committed to managing the estate with the utmost care, while implementing an ambitious environmental plan.

Brouilly is the southernmost appellation in Beaujolais. The site is on a natural amphitheater with south/southeast exposure, on steep hillsides of sandy pink granite that allow for excellent drainage.

For this wine, fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks using indigenous yeasts with semi-carbonic maceration - 50% Burgundian (destemmed) and 50% whole cluster. Pumping-over is practiced without punching down, to preserve the fruit and freshness of the wine. 70% of the wine is aged in stainless steel, 30% in foudres for 12 months.
