The brothers Antoine and Maxime were in hot pursuit of new challenges beyond the Rhone valley due likely to their love for the Gamay grape. They purchased a five hectare plot in northern Beaujolais near the appellations of Saint-Amour and Julienas in 2013. And so began their new endeavor as a force to be reckoned with in a region currently experiencing viticultural renaissance. The brothers are making all the appropriate decisions in keeping their grapes organic, the vineyards biodynamic, and the winery itself sustainable.
This is the first vintage of the Graillot’s Chardonnay from their vines in the Saint Veran appellation, lying in southern Burgundy. The vines are relatively close to their other Beaujolais vines. The wine spends some time in oak, and drinks true to the character of the wines from this region: minerally, juicy, and plenty of acidity.
