This wine is made in very small quantities, using the best grapes, from the oldest vines (between 75 and 100 years old). 85.45 is a very special wine, one to be enjoyed and savoured. It is made using 100% Gamay grapes and given 21 months in oak barrels. The colour is deepest garnet with hints of ruby. The nose is bursting with black fruits with touches of coffee and liquorice. The palate is fleshy and compex with well integrated tannins. The finish is long and satisfying.

JB does all the vineyard work; he finds this to be the best way of ensuring the quality and sustainability of the grapes. Using an agroforestry system, he replicates what can be observed in the wild forest. This helps the vines to grow strong without spraying chemicals on the ground and without ploughing the earth (which would damage the soil structure).

Cover crops help the fauna to naturally fight against pests. The cover crop also competes with the vines which keeps the yields low.

This is a wine to drink young, which will be drinking well until 2026.

Perfect to start a meal with a plate of charcuterie and some cornichons.

More Information



Gamay is a thin, delicate purple-black skinned grape which is cylindrical and compact, surrounded by flat, fairly even-edged leaves.

Although granite soils seem to be its soil of choice, the variety is good at adapting. Half of the 30,000 hectares of Gamay planted worldwide are in the Beaujolais region of France, where it covers 98% of the areas that produce Beaujolais wine.


Beaujolais, France

The hilly Beaujolais vineyards stretch out from north to south over 55km, bordered to the west by the Massif Central, and to the east by the Saone river.

Beaujolais vineyards are emblematic in the French national landscape, but are still teeming with secrets to be unearthed. The region has a constent sense of welcome and sharing. Sculpted over centuries it is personified by its 12 AOCs.


Jean-Baptiste Bachevillier, Domaine de Mont Joly

JB is an artisan. His aim is to make the finest "terroir" wine in Beaujolais. Wine which is made in the vineyard: the grapes are hand harvested, he uses no additives, minimal fining, and as little sulphur as possible. He is the eighth generation of the Bechvillier family to farm the vines at Mont Joly, but the first since 1873 to own the vineyard, purchasing the land before he was 30 and realising his childhood dream.
