Certified organic (biodynamic farming). This is from the Roche Guillon lieu-dit, a steep, terraced climat in Fleurie. It’s another high-altitude site, rising to 350 metres above sea level and sits on a west-facing hillside close to Poncié (which we know well from the Vissoux stable). Coincidentally, another newcomer to the area, Frédéric Lafarge, also farms vines on this same hill. Hemmed by forest and stream, this is a beautiful place and the 40-plus-year-old, biodynamically-managed vines are rooted in pink granitic sand mixed through with limestone and clay; a soil known locally as ‘gore’. The Domaine is now taking advantage of the new laws in Beaujolais that allow for higher planting densities, and a new trellis has been set up to enable the team to run a taller canopy, “like Bize-Leroy” half-jokes Maxime Graillot.
