BACKGROUND

Château de la Chaize is among the oldest, most historic estates in Burgundy’s Beaujolais region. Boasting over 250 acres of vineyards, it is also one of the largest. The property is currently owned and managed by the Marquise de Roussy de Sales family, who transformed Château de la Chaize into one of the most innovative and forward-thinking producers in the region. Among its many initiatives is the adoption of eco-friendly winemaking practices. Château de la Chaize is located in the Brouilly appellation, the largest of the Beaujolais Crus and where the predominant grape planted is Gamay.

WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES

The granitic ochre sand of the Brouilly hills allows perfect drainage. At La Chaize, 50% of the vineyard is older than 50 years, some plants even reaching 75-years old.

TASTING NOTES

Light ruby with purple tones, with aromas of fresh strawberries and raspberries. The palate has silky red fruits balanced by lively acidity. Pair with all meats, chicken, wild mushrooms, and strong cheeses. Serve slightly chilled.
