" Produced from old vines on the Chatelard estate, this wine is smooth, ripe and full of vibrant red fruits. There is a good balance between acidity and rich fruit with just a light core of tannins in the background. Drink now."
" Château du Châtelard is situated in the heart of Crus du Beaujolais between Fleurie and Morgon (20kms South of Macon). Rebuilt during the 18th and the 19th centuries, Châtelard is a “poype” (building situated on a hill and surrounded by ditches). Its arched caves are the only vestiges of its 12th century origins, destroyed by a fire. At that period of time, the abbey of Tournus monks were shaping the terroir and defining the parcels.
The vineyard and the winery were mainly established before 1955 and the 28 hectares of vines are set in beautiful rolling Beaujolais countryside. There are few to possess a rocky chalk-clay soil for the whites, explaining their finesse.
The estate is now managed by Aurélie de Vermont. Born in the Beaujolais area, she is our winemaker and has been working in France and overseas for ten years. She is now totally involved in the day to day running of the estate with these 3 keys words: standards, passion, & patience.” ~ Winery notes
