Our estate : Domaine Versant du Soleil
Our own estate, the Domaine Versant du Soleil, is situated on magnificent parcels at between 300 and 400 metres altitude, spread around the villages of Blacé and Vaux en Beaujolais, on the hillsides north-east of Villefranche, and in the Beaujolais hills overlooking the plain of the Saone, which allows us to make a Beaujolais Villages
of excellent quality.
The steep sandy and clay slopes allow the Gamay grapes to express all their aromatic qualities. With a production of 95 hectolitres (or 12500 bottles), this wine is highly sought after!
Our wine is perfect as an aperitif with tapas, dried hams, salads, red meats and mature cheese. It is a beautiful ruby colour, with a nose of red fruits and spice and a smooth palate with silky tannins.
We also propose our estate wine in a primeur version : a festive new wine that is fruity and delicious.
