Viticultural Notes

The Les Brurreaux vineyard is located in the center of the Chénas cru at approximately 290m above sea level. The vineyard's soil have a significant proportion of granite compared to elsewhere in Chénas. Vines are trained in the traditional gobelet system of Beaujolais and harvested by hand. This vineyard's signature can be defined as a smoky-earth tone underpinning the dark-fruited character of gamay.
