Producer Note
The Château de Grand Pré comprises a beautiful 18th Century castle complete with vaulted cellars, a "lieu dit" vineyard and an eight hectare family domaine in the Beaujolais region. The winery is located in the heart of Fleurie where they own six hectares of vineyards, with a further two hectares in the village of Morgon. Born winegrowers, Louis and Renée Bertrand bought the domaine in 1972, the vines were old and the cellars were in ruins. They took the estate in hand and gave it a new lease of life, replanting and rebuilding. Today it is run by their children, Guy and his wife Annick; Christine and her husband Claude Zordan and their grandson Romain Zordan. The entire family passionately carries on the traditions that started three generations ago. Romain Zordan has brought a modern and organic approach, tending the vines with a complete respect for the environment and using sustainable techniques. The estate has been certified Organic since 2012. These are wines of purity and precision, a true expression of their Beaujolais terroir. Vintage
2016 was a challenging year for Beaujolais as elsewhere in France. The spring saw unpredictable weather which demanded vigilance in the vines. Weather improved into the summer and the warm June and July brought about ideal growing conditions. Warm weather just before the harvest was coupled with cooler nights, allowing the grapes to reach full maturity while retaining a refreshing acidity, resulting in a fine vintage. Vineyard
Fleurie is one of the 10 Beaujolais Crus and is famous for the elegance and finesse of its wines, which is linked to a pink granite soils. The Château de Grand Pré prunes their vines very precisely into a Goblet shape and undertakes a green harvest encouraging concentration in the berries. As the vines are more than 30 years old, the yields are very low, at approximately 40 hectolitres per hectare. The granitic soils in the vineyard impart a mineral characteristic to the resulting wine. Winemaking
The harvest was carefully selected by hand. Carbonic maceration took place for 10 to 15 days, a slow process in order to gently extract the complexity of aromas. No sulphites were added during the vinification process and only minimal sulphur was added at bottling. Fermentation took place using natural yeasts at controlled temperatures. The wine was then aged for several months in small barrels and demimuids of 500 litres. Tasting Note
A very elegant wine expressing distinctive Gamay characteristics with a floral bouquet of violets, roses and red fruits, leading to a velvety palate of wild strawberries combined with a hint of liquorice and spice. Concentrated, with a lingering finish.
