Like throughout the entire Beaujolais region, the Gamay grape is king, capable of subtle expressions when planted in granite and silica-based terroirs. The vineyards cover the hillsides surrounding the castle and face due south, which provides optimal conditions for the ripening of the grapes so that they express all the characteristic red berry fruitiness of Gamay.
The nose is both fine and intense with floral (violet, peony) and fruity (raspberry, blackcurrant) notes. The palate is refreshing, fleshy and full-bodied with ripe, fruity notes. The finish is long and refreshing with lasting fruit flavours
