Vinous 90
"Brilliant ruby. A deeply perfumed bouquet evokes fresh dark fruits, exotic spices and incense, with a subtle floral nuance building as the wine opens up. Broad and fleshy on the palate, offering plump boysenberry and cherry flavors that are supported by a core of juicy acidity. Shows solid dark fruit on the gently tannic finish, which hangs on with very good tenacity."

View all from Chateau de Pizay
Chateau de PizayThe Chateau de Pizay is one of the oldest and most famous estates of the Beaujolais region. Since the Middle Ages the fine wines of the Ch√Ęteau de Pizay have been appreciated by Beaujolais-lovers across the world.

The oldest records date to 1030, when the name Pizay was mentioned for the first time in the charters of the Abbey of Cluny. In 1070, a surrounding wall was erected by the Lords of Pizay. The keep was built in the 14th Century and the classic formal gardens were added in the 18th Century.

While it is still the center of winemaking, the main Chateau is now a luxurious 4 star hotel, with an excellent restaurant. Visitors are able to visit the magnificent old cellars that have hosted many famous banquets. The Chateau and grounds are beautifully maintained including a sculpted topiary garden. A fantastic estate for wine, food and relaxation.

The vineyard, based in Morgon covers 100 acres in the Appellations of Morgon, Regnie, Beaujolais Villages. and Beaujolais. It also produces a delicious Beaujolais Blanc, Beaujolais Rose and Coteaux Bourguignons, all of which are bottled in the distinctive Pizay bottle. The terrain is granite, covered with a light sandy soil, ideal for the Gamay grape. The Morgon includes parcels on the slopes of the famous Cote de Py from which they produce several special cuvees.

Winemaking combines tradition with the use of stainless steel, semi carbonic fermentation and modern temperature control methods to ensure preservation of the fruit and freshness in the wines.HVE The Director and former mayor of Brouilly, Pascal Dufaitre, is dedicated to quality and wine making excellence.
