The range offered by the Château de Chatelard centers on 8 ha of Fleurie vines and another 20 ha evenly spread over good vineyard plots in Moulin à Vent, Morgon, Beaujolais Blanc and Beaujolais Villages rouge and Beaujolais. Since its creation after the Fifties, the estate has developed a loyal clientele both nationally internationally. The vineyards are well situated - many were planted before 1955 - and give excellent expression of the unique Beaujolais terroirs. This pretty 18th century château has evolved over time, earning its place among the leading properties of the Beaujolais.

Tasting Notes:

A golden color, shiny and clear. Rich nose of fruit and spices melting  with some peach , lemon and curry aromates. Palate clear and robust. An intense final with some grilled and jammed notes. Great feeling, a wine that gives without restraint, for an immediate pleasure.

After racking at low temperatures, fermentation takes place in temperature controlled vats on fine lees from which we obtain a full, fatty wine. Aged for 8 months on fine lees in barrels.
