    Winemaker Notes

    The Beaujolais Villages appellation is found in the limited part of the Beaujolais region between Villefranche and Mâcon. The area covers 15,000 acres of vineyards situated on picturesque hillsides. The soils are often granite-based, but can also consist of schist and volcanic residue. WINEMAKING Traditional Beaujolais vinification techniques are used: whole uncrushed bunches of grapes are put into vats, allowing intracellular fermentation (carbonic maceration) to begin inside each individual grape. A long maceration period (eight days) and several "délestages" are used to extract additional fruit flavors and tannic structure. The malolactic fermentation follows the end of alcoholic fermentation in the tank. Then the wines are blended, fined and filtered before bottling. The authorized maximum yield is 50 hl/ha for Beaujolais Villages appellation (as opposed to 55 hl/ha for Beaujolais Appellation). WINEMAKER NOTES Bright raspberry red color. The nose is intense, with hints of licorice and red berry fruits. After a full and round attack, the texture is firm and smooth. The wine finishes with flavors of red currant and raspberry.

    Barton & Guestier Winery Video

    Barton & Guestier is the oldest and one of the most prestigious wine houses in Bordeaux. The firm was established in 1725 by Thomas Barton, a renowned negociant coming from Ireland. In the early 19th century, his grandson joined forces with Frenchman Daniel Guestier, a reputed importer of Bordeaux wines into Baltimore, in the British colonies in America, and the one who delivered the wines that President Thomas Jefferson had ordered from the Barton family.

    The Barton & Guestier winemakers work in partnership with about 200 passionate winegrowers over the greatest French wine regions: Bordeaux, Loire Valley, Burgundy, Beaujolais, Rhone Valley, Languedoc, Gascony and Corsica. For almost 300 years, Barton & Guestier offers a wonderful variety of wines that enables wine lovers, from the occasional wine drinker to the connoisseur to make a journey through France. 

    Sustainability is a fundamental element of global economy. Barton & Guestier is involved in various steps towards sustainability, especially at Château Magnol, which is member of the first organization for the Environmental Management System for Bordeaux Wines. Steps involved considerations about land, energy, water and wastewater quality, carbon and water footprint, waste reduction, safety, and health. The Chateau and all the B&G Bordeaux wines have been certified ISO 14001 in 2013.

    Red Wine

    Celebrated as some of the best wine in the universe, red wine from Burgundy, otherwise known as red Burgundy, is Pinot noir. In fact Burgundy is the birthplace of Pinot noir and the source of the planet’s most sensual, delicate, valuable and sought-after Pinot noir wines.

    Understanding and enjoying red Burgundy can stay simple, with a basic knowledge of its subregions, become more intricate by dialing down to the villages and vineyards or become a life-long passion, exploring climats (plots of vines), vintages and the post French Revolution land ownership laws. In any case, a fine red Burgundy will display refined nuances of black currant, red fruit, earth, spice, alluring floral aromatics and have great elegance, complexity and longevity.

    Most famous, praised and collected of Burgunday are those from the Côte d'Or. Hundreds of millions of years ago, the area now called Côte d'Or was under a warm ocean whose sea floor has, over time, shifted and decomposed into various layers of limestone, sandstone and clay interspersed with ancient fossilized sea creatures. This is what is referred to as the famous escarpment upon which all of the highly sought-after Grands Crus and Premiers Crus vineyards can be found. In other words, from north to south, the best vineyards of Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-St-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Vougeot, Vosne-Romanée, Flagey-Echezeaux, Nuits-St-Georges, Aloxe-Corton, Pommard and Volnay follow the path of this ancient sea bed.
