Beaujolais Blanc






Cultivated 5 minutes drive away from Château des Jacques, just a few kilometers away from Mâcon, Saint Vérand and Pouilly-Fuissé appellations, this chardonnay comes from Clos de Loyse, a plot of 10 hectares. The land and castle opposite were a medieval stronghold, belonging to the Barons of Loyse. In 1643 these lands where passed-on to Chartreux Monks who built the walls and dug ditches around the plot to protect it and improve drainage, and planted Chardonnay instead of the original gamay vines. This terroir offers a particularly fruity expression of Chardonnay, on soil of ancient foothill deposits placed on granite bedrock.


This Beaujolais blanc is pressed straight after the harvest, it rests overnight for cold settling (debourbage) in stainless steel vats. It then undergoes fermentation on lies, in order to get the purest expression of Chardonnay grown in Beaujolais.

Winemaking and bottling

The wine is matured on its lies for 7 to 8 months and bottled at the beginning of Spring.

Tasting / Food pairing

This wine is dry, lively and fresh, very appealing on the nose showing hints of exotic fruits and white flowers. This white Beaujolais is at the same time voluptuous and very fresh. It is the best companion to fish tartar, shellfish but also to goat cheese from Beaujolais and Mâconnais.


This wine can be enjoyed young but can also be aged 3 to 5 years in appropriate cellaring conditions.


2023 Vintage is one of these "unexpected" great vintages : between its slow and quite challenging beginnings in spring, through a summer of successive heat waves, alternating with rainstorms and cooler days, it delivers now wines of an incredible balance between aromatic ripeness and elegant freshness.
