Viticultural Notes

The Les Fournelles vineyard is located on the east-southeast face of Mount Brouilly in the Côte de Brouilly cru. The vines are planted on steep slopes composed of decomposed, sedimentary blue rock of volcanic origin. Soil surveys suggest this soil is older than granite. Vines are trained in the traditional gobelet system of Beaujolais and harvested by hand.
