After selective sorting of the harvested grapes before vatting on a sorting table, the bunches of grapes are vatted whole (no de-stalking or crushing).
They are vinified using traditional Beaujolais methods, where the bunches are kept whole throughout vatting, which lasts 7 to 8 days.
In this way we craft a ruby-coloured Beaujolais-Villages with pleasant red fruit aromas (raspberry, red currant, strawberry). The tannins are supple and blend in beautifully. This fruity wine will be tasty all the time of day.
A 100% Gamay Petillant Naturel from the Loire Valley. Deliciously dry and earthy, zero SO2 is added to this easy drinking, fresh sparkling rose.a

The 2017 Morgon wafts from the glass with aromas of cassis, plums and spicy soil, framed by some high-toned top notes. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, ample and open-knit, with fine but youthfully chewy structuring tannins that assert themselves on the finish.
100% Gamay. L'Ancien comes from Jean Paul's oldest vines--hence the name of the wine--in his home village of Charnay in the southern Beaujolais. They range in age from 40 to 60 years old and are planted on slopes sporting the area's signature sandy clay-limestone soils, featuring the particular local "dorée" or "golden" limestone that is laden with iron. These older vines have always been farmed organically and harvested by hand and yield small, thick-skinned Gamay berries. As for all Terres Dorées reds, the vinification is traditional Burgundian. The grapes are rigorously sorted and destemmed, crushed and fermented with indigenous yeasts in concrete vats. The wine is aged in concrete until May-June after the vintage.
Vignobles Bulliat’s 2019 Morgon “Nature” is made from 100% Gamay that comes from a south-east facing 4-hectare hillside plot that reaches up to a 40° slope. The soils are composed of crumbly schist and granite, and vines average 60 years old. After the grapes are hand-harvested, whole-cluster fermentation takes place after a long maceration in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks using only indigenous yeasts. Once fermentation is complete, the wine is aged in concrete vats for 4 months and bottled unfined, unfiltered, with no added sulfites.
Bright and fragrant, with strawberry and cranberry infused fruit, Bulliat’s Morgon shows wonderful finesse along with its balanced tannin structure. There is also a clear mineral backbone, which adds to the beautiful aromatic and textural lift present in the wine.
A beautiful pale pink robe, a delicate nose of white flowers and red fruits, a precise and intense mouth. Dominating the blend, the Pinot Noir brings elegance and power, while the freshness of Chardonnay and the delicacy of Gamay complete the balance of this cuvée.
"Bursting with vibrant pink grapefruit and red berry aromas; a complexity of brioche, hibiscus and lime zest with a creamy mousse and an elegant, saline finish."- 95 points Decanter
