Château de Belleverne - Boutinot International
X

Beaujolais is back and it’s easy to see why its popularity is soaring – the region produces accessible, easy-drinking wines in a variety of styles. Based in north Beaujolais, Château de Belleverne is a 36ha domaine managed using environmentally friendly practices (and HVE certified since 2018). Its vineyards are at least 50 years old and include plots in four of the ten Beaujolais Cru - Juliénas, Chénas, Moulin-à-Vent and Saint-Amour - as well as in the northern realms of the Beaujolais Villages appellation. Boutinot’s Samantha Bailey discovered the estate in 2014 during an impromptu tasting with brothers Didier and Alain Bataillard (whose family have owned the 240 year-old property since 1969). Sharing their pursuit of finesse and concentration in Beaujolais wines, and intrigued by their twist on traditional vinification techniques, such as cooling the grapes during carbonic maceration to achieve this, a close working relationship developed. Samantha now has crucial ‘first access’ to the cellar, going in before anyone else to taste each and every cuvée to create blends exclusively for Boutinot, as shown in this Château de Belleverne range which features a Beaujolais Villages and a brace of Cru wines from Chénas and Saint Amour.
