Origin

The vineyards of the Beaujolais region are very hilly. Château de Pierreux's 103 hectares of vines are planted in shallow, well- drained pink granitic, schistous, and siliceous soils. The vines are aged between 40 and 45 years and are sustainably farmed in order to limit the use of chemicals in the vineyards, reestablish the vines' physiological balance and protect the environment.

Grape Variety

100% Gamay.

Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes were carefully sorted to ensure a high quality. The grapes were 100% destemmed and were then fermented in concrete vats for 12 to 15 days at temperatures of 22-28°C. Pumpovers were completed twice daily during this period. The wine was aged in large oak barrels for 12 months prior to bottling.

Alcohol Percentage
