Situated south of the legendary Burgundy vineyard. Beaujolais is a small area where the soil is mainly granite. The predominant grapes are Gamay for the red and Chardonnay for the white (tiny production). The wines are fresh, vivid and fruity with a light body in general. Morgon and Brouilly wines are more structured in body.
The name of the domaine Les Roches Bleues comes from the bluey layer of manganese soil under Mont Brouilly (South of Beaujolais area). This vine originates near the summit of this long extinct volcano.
The wine is made from a carbonic maceration (whole berries fermented for a week). This method gives a light body with subtle tannins and plenty of fresh fruit character.
Fleurie, one of the ten crus of Beaujolais, is known for its refined and elegant wines, with refreshing red fruit flavours alongside floral notes. Perfect with white meats, salmon or tuna, and creamy sauces. This wine, from the highly rated Arenite vineyard, is richly floral with fresh berry aromas! Slightly chilled, this is a perfect summer evening red.
The Moulin a Vent Les Burdelines Domaine Laurent Perrachon, is a suave wine that offers great depth and balance. Comprised of 100% Gamay from vines as old as 65 years, this is a wine that while approachable now, will reward cellaring for a year or two.
One of the most delicate wines from the Beaujolais cru. The vines grow at the foot of the prestigious plot, La Madone.

There is no oak ageing. This wine has a nice garnet colour with vibrant fresh berries and red fruit flavours. The wine is dry with great balanced tannins and a refreshing finish.
