    Winemaker Notes

    The Chateau du Chatelard Fleurie is a carmine red color. Its intense nose exudes floral aromas and small black and red fruits. On the palate, its frank attack gives way to a fleshy and silky body. The finish is full of greed. This selection plays the card of elegance and finesse.

    Chateau de Chatelard is situated in the heart of Crus du Beaujolais between Fleurie and Morgon (20kms South of Macon). Rebuilt during the 18th and the 19th centuries, Chatelard is a “poype” (building situated on a hill and surrounded by ditches). Its arched caves are the only vestiges of its 12th century origins. The estate is now managed by Aurélie de Vermont, oenologist and daughter of a Beaujolais winemaker, with over 10 years of experience.Her philosophy? REQUIREMENT. PASSION. PATIENCE. Staying true to the excellence and authenticity of Beaujolais wines, Aurélie maintains close bonds with the other winemakers of the region. She strictly selects micro-cuvées, born from the mosaic of terroirs that are the Beaujolais Maconnais vineyards, to sublimate the wines under the Baronne du Chatelard banner.

    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.
