Winemaker Notes

Dark and deep with a full nose enhanced with spices, wood and discreet scent of resin. In the mouth, it is warm, round, supple and seductive.

Critical Acclaim

James Suckling
The violet ruby color is eye-popping and the aromas of black cherry and wild blackberry are no less explosive, but behind all this is a solid tannin base, crisp acidity and a long, very crisp finish. Drink or hold.

Chateau de Pizay, France
The Chateau de Pizay is one of the oldest and most famous estates of the Beaujolais region. Since the Middle Ages the fine wines of the Château de Pizay have been appreciated by Beaujolais-lovers across the world. The oldest records date to 1030, when the name Pizay was mentioned for the first time in the charters of the Abbey of Cluny. In 1070, a surrounding wall was erected by the Lords of Pizay. The keep was built in the 14th Century and the classic formal gardens were added in the 18th Century. While it is still the center of winemaking, the main Chateau is now a luxurious 4 star hotel, with an excellent restaurant. Visitors are able to visit the magnificent old cellars that have hosted many famous banquets. The Chateau and grounds are beautifully maintained including a sculpted topiary garden. A fantastic estate for wine, food and relaxation. The vineyard, based in Morgon covers 100 acres in the Appellations of Morgon, Regnie, Beaujolais Villages. and Beaujolais. It also produces a delicious Beaujolais Blanc, Beaujolais Rose and Coteaux Bourguignons, all of which are bottled in the distinctive Pizay bottle. The terrain is granite, covered with a light sandy soil, ideal for the Gamay grape. The Morgon includes parcels on the slopes of the famous Cote de Py from which they produce several special cuvees. Winemaking combines tradition with the use of stainless steel, semi carbonic fermentation and modern temperature control methods to ensure preservation of the fruit and freshness in the wines.HVE The Director and former mayor of Brouilly, Pascal Dufaitre, is dedicated to quality and wine making excellence. Since 1996 they have maintained 5 hectare of Organic vineyards and in 2015 they achieved level 3 "High Environmental Value" Certification.

Delightfully playful, but also capable of impressive gravitas, Gamay is responsible for juicy, berry-packed wines. From Beaujolais, Gamay generally has three classes: Beaujolais Nouveau, a decidedly young, fruit-driven wine, Beaujolais Villages and Cru Beaujolais. The Villages and Crus are highly ranked grape growing communes whose wines are capable of improving with age whereas Nouveau, released two months after harvest, is intended for immediate consumption. Somm Secret—The ten different Crus have their own distinct personalities—Fleurie is delicate and floral, Côte de Brouilly is concentrated and elegant and Morgon is structured and age-worthy.

The bucolic region often identified as the southern part of Burgundy, Beaujolais actually doesn’t have a whole lot in common with the rest of the region in terms of climate, soil types and grape varieties. Beaujolais achieves its own identity with variations on style of one grape, Gamay.

Gamay was actually grown throughout all of Burgundy until 1395 when the Duke of Burgundy banished it south, making room for Pinot Noir to inhabit all of the “superior” hillsides of Burgundy proper. This was good news for Gamay as it produces a much better wine in the granitic soils of Beaujolais, compared with the limestone escarpments of the Côte d’Or.

Four styles of Beaujolais wines exist. The simplest, and one that has regrettably given the region a subpar reputation, is Beaujolais Nouveau. This is the Beaujolais wine that is made using carbonic maceration (a quick fermentation that results in sweet aromas) and is released on the third Thursday of November in the same year as harvest. It's meant to drink young and is flirty, fruity and fun. The rest of Beaujolais is where the serious wines are found. Aside from the wines simply labelled, Beaujolais, there are the Beaujolais-Villages wines, which must come from the hilly northern part of the region, and offer reasonable values with some gems among them. The superior sections are the cru vineyards coming from ten distinct communes: St-Amour, Juliénas, Chénas, Moulin-à-Vent, Fleurie, Chiroubles, Morgon, Regnié, Brouilly, and Côte de Brouilly. Any cru Beajolais will have its commune name prominent on the label.
