Type: Red Wine
Château de Grand Pré is a family estate located in the southern part of Burgundy, in the communes of Fleurie and Villié-Morgon. Louis and Renée Bertrand bought the domaine in 1972. Today, the winery is run by their children, Guy (with his wife Annick) and Christine (with husband Claude Zordan). Their grandson Romain Zordan also works with the family. Together, they tend to the organic estate vines with complete respect for the environment. The vineyards spread over 8 hectares in Morgon, Fleurie and Beaujolais Villages.
Vinification is done naturally, with native yeasts and no additives. The wines are unfiltered, with little to no sulfur depending on the vintage.
The grapes come from vines between 60 and 70 years old located on sandy, granitic soil with a south, south-east exposure. Harvesting is done manually, fermentation is spontaneous with native yeasts, the wine macerates for two weeks and then ages for 6 months in demi-muids.
Floral, with red fruits and notes of undergrowth. Great structure and minerality, and a long, savory finish.
