Des Grottes initially came to Beaujolais after finishing business school. He already had a child he wished to raise in the countryside, and had no special attachment to Paris, when his grandfather proposed he help manage the office for the Château de Lacarelle.’ Of the 8 hectares he farms, he ripped up 50% to put in cereal and cover crops to aid in the soil health and sustainability.
Unfined/Unfiltered. No added SO2. Short macerations in whole bunches. Fruity, with good acidity and a hint of tiny bubbles. Just 11% alcohol.
