I’m stated my job in 1989, after obtaining my diploma in oenology and wine-growing.
My estate is located in the tiny village of Morgon in the heart of Beaujolais crus.
I’m working on 19 hectares with 3 guaranteed vintage of red wines, (Beaujolais villages 5 hectares; Régnié 1 hectare; Morgon 13 hectares)
Born into a family of generations of wine growers, my passion is reflected in your glass when you taste these typical wines produced from my vineyards.
The ancient art of wine-growing, the grape picking by hand and the traditional vinification allow us to offer, year after year wines appreciated by connaisseurs.
The « gamay noir a jus Blanc » is the single variety of vine, for all red wines.
The 2018 Morgon Côte du Py James is showing beautifully, soaring from the glass with a deep and complex bouquet of violets, cassis and blackberries mingled with hints of cracked pepper and loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, it's lively and beautifully balanced, built around powdery tannins and impressively lively acids, and concludes with a long, penetrating finish.
