About the winemaker:

"The family estate located in South Beaujolais has existed since 1850 and was passed down from his father. Itis made up of different terroirs (clay-limestone, silt, granite, alluvium, pink sands) which allows JFD to develop vintages with characteristics specific to each plot. The vines on the estate are made up of Gamay, Viognier and Chardonnay. He works meticulously to obtain grapes of the best possible quality while respecting the vine, thesoil as well as the auxiliary fauna. The vinification is done in whole bunches or destemmed bunches, the aging is done in foudre or Burgundy barrels for about 8 months. The result is natural wine made from carefully chosen and harvested grapes, vinified with delicacy and aged with patience while respecting the environment.Until 2016 the grapes were either brought to the cooperative cellar or sold to local winegrowers (and this remains the case for about 9 hectares). In 2016, a change of profession for Jean-François Debourg becoming winemaker and not only a winegrower. During a chance meeting with another of our cherished producers, François Écot (The insolent in Burgundy), something clickedand François took him under his wing to teach him the rudiments of natural winemaking. Since 2016, the Winery has been in organic conversion and all the vines will be certified in 2021.

 

Jean-François is not only winemaker, he is also a mason (built his winery, his storage), a winemaker full of energy, ideas. Changing, moving, modifying with every vintage."
