For many years Beaujolais Blanc was hoarded by its winemakers, a secret not to be shared with the world. How glad we are to be able to share that secret and bring you something truly amazing.
Grown on the clay and limestone soils around Corcelles, this Chardonnay expresses all its freshness and minerality - think Maconnais, but without the Burgundian price tag! Fruity and saline the colour is pale, crystalline yellow which in time will change to gold. The nose expresses lovely white flesh fruit whilst the palette has the subtle citrus fruit flavour of pomelo.
The vintage produced wines which are concentrated and harmonious between colour, substance and roundness.
Once upon a time in Beaujolais an ancient family of winemakers wanted to make wines which speak of their place. The Piron family, headed by Dominique Piron, purchased the historical old church of Saint-Pierre de Corcelles and a great and rich diversity of vineyards in Morgon, Chénas and Régnié. Clos du Vieux Bourg traces it's wines from ancient history to the wines of tomorrow.
This white Beaujolais goes well with fish dishes and white meats, or is ideal as an aperitif.
