Story

Noël Bulliat and his son Loïc run this family estate that covers 27 ha in 8 different appelations in the heart of the Beaujolais region. It all started in 1978 when Noël bought 4 ha of Beaujolais Villages straight after having graduated from viticultural school. Today, under Loic's guidance, the estate has switched to organic practices and was officially certified in 2013.

Vineyard

The Bulliat use eco-friendly techniques in the vineyards to avoid pesticides and limit yields, such as allowing grass to grow between the vines. All of the grapes are hand harvested. The terroir is located on schiste and granite soil with a South-East facing sun exposure. Vineyard management is executed sans chemicals nor pesticides, as well as through grassing and tilling. The vines are on average of 40 years old and they are planted on hillside as steep as 40% slope.

Vinification

The grapes are hand-picked with the whole clusters. A first cold maceration at 8 degres Celcius is done to preserve aromatic profile in the grapes. The whole cluster are then moved to a cement tank for the semi-carbonic maceration, lasting 10 to 12 days using indigenous yeasts. The wines are aged in thermoregulated stainless steel tanks.

Tasting Notes

Bright cherry red color, aromas of red fruits dominated by strawberries and blackcurrants. Fine-grained tannins lead onto a fresh and silky finish.

Food Pairing

Ideal with roasted pork chops, stuffed mushrooms, pizza, charcuterie, salad or cheeses.
