Features

The Grand Clos de Loyse is a monopoly parcel of 10 hectares. It is situated on the border between the granite slopes and the former bed of the Saône River. The Chardonnay vines are fed by the river's more recent sediments, and soil deposits that date back to Hercynian period lend them a gentle trace of minerality.

Vinification

Picked and then transported in small plastic cases, the grapes are pressed as soon as possible. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks, which aids the preservation of the wine's minerality, purity of fruit and crisp acidity.

Maturing and bottling

Maturation takes place in stainless steel tanks over the course of several months. Bottling takes place at the start of the following summer.

Tasting / Wine and food pairing

This wine is so pure, fresh and mineral-driven that we recommend it as an apéritif, or as a match for shellfish and white fish. When paired with sushi, the wine's crisp acidity makes the match sing.

Conservation

The ‘Grand Clos de Loyse' white Beaujolais is a wine that is designed to be enjoyed in its youth.

The Vintage

2009 was, without a doubt, the greatest vintage in living memory. Ideal weather throughout the year ensured a September harvest of perfectly ripe bunches. These were small and tight, but just the right shape to allow air to circulate, ensuring pristine health and exceptional ripening, all of which led to the creation of a perfectly balanced wine whose concentration and texture were remarkable. When it comes to ageing potential, there is little doubt that these wines will outlive us all.
