From this large south-facing hillside, the view of the Beaujolais Crus is incredible. We can see many villages and their bell towers as well as many mountains. For us it is one of the most beautiful views of Beaujolais. Here the very stony ground is slightly loamy more than its neighbor the Clos du Chapitre. The large surface area of ​​this cuvée (4.5 hectares) allows us to try several types of maceration. The aging of this wine lasts 12 months in barrels, demi-muids and stainless steel vats. The finesse, the silky tannins and its significant aging potential make it an elegant cuvée.

Producer: Domaine Chardigny

A family estate between Beaujolais and Burgundy.

It is between Burgundy and Beaujolais that the Chardigny estate cultivates vines and transforms magnificent grapes into quality wines. The exploitation of an area of 20 hectares extends over different clay-limestone slopes.

In 2015, on the strength of various commercial experiences, Pierre-Maxime took over the estate. Quickly, Victor, holder of an oenology diploma, joined him. They are supported by their brother Jean-Baptiste, also working in viticulture and their father who made his career in the bottling of wine at the property.

The estate has 8 hectares of Saint-Véran among the best slopes of the appellation, 6 hectares of Saint-Amour, 3 hectares of Beaujolais-Villages and 3 hectares of Burgundy. The vines are cultivated organically, that is to say without synthetic pesticides or herbicides. The good health of the soil and the vines are the key to having quality grapes allowing the production of unique wines.

All their vines are cultivated according to the principles of organic farming.
