About Chateau de Pierreux:
Chateau de Pierreux, a 190-acres estate in Brouilly with a magnificent chateau winery built during the Renaissance, is one of the finest domains in the Beaujolais region. Our winemaker, Patrice Monternier, has 25 years of direct experience working with this terroir, inheriting expertise from his father, the winemaker before him. Here the sandy, pink granite soil sprinkeld with blue volcanic rocks is perfect for our Gamay grapes with 4,000 vines planted per 100 acres. Using ecologically friendly viticulture, working with vary low yields, selecting the oldest vines, restricting any unnecessary treatment, and using only narrative yeasts in the winery, we produce grapes (and ultimately wine) marked by the authentic character of their terroir.
