This superb wine comes from 1 hectare of vines inherited from Cedric Chignard’s uncle. The vineyard faces directly south giving it excellent exposure to the ripening sun. The blue ‘diorite’ soil here is different to the pink granite of Fleurie.
Chignard’s Juliénas Beauvernay 2019 is very pretty – a gorgeous cherry colour leads into charming aromas of strawberries, cherries and rocks. In the mouth it brings a smile to the face – it’s purity, crunchy fresh fruit and silky length make for a very attractive, delicious wine.
