CHATEAU DE LAVERNETTE

Beaujolais
The Lavernette land and house, property of the monks of the Abbey of Tournus, became the Lavernette seigneurial seat in 1596. The vines were already part of the estate at this time, there was a winery, with two wine presses and four large vats. Today, Château de Lavernette, located at the crossroads between Mâconnais and Beaujolais in the communes of Chaintré and Leynes, belongs to the Boisseau family, descendants of the Lavernette family.



Antoine and Yvonne de Boissieu took over the estate and cultivated the vines until 1978. Bertrand and Hubert, two sons from among Antoine and Yvonne's 14 children, set up a jointly-run farm, known as a 'GAEC' together and continues to grow vines, taking them to the cooperative until 1988. Bertrand and Anke created an 'EARL" (limited agricultural company) and reinstalled the old winery to be able to make and sell the wine themselves. Hubert took retirement in 1997.

Since 2007, Xavier, Bertrand and Anke's son, along with Kerrie, his wife, have all worked together on the family estate, combining their qualities, experiences and knowledge to produce great wines.

A party wine, a celebration wine, a unique wine, a wine to be enjoyed and discovered. Granit begins to surprise with its unusual colour, white and clear, with what could be referred to as a very subtle rosé eye. The nose is fress, pleasant and delicate. The scents of red and white fruits blend together like a good freshly picked fruit salad. The bubbles...

A brilliant pale yellow colour which dances exquisitely in the light. The nose is intensely fruity with notes of apricots, grapefruit melon and white fig. The palate is spicy with notes of thyme and minerality. The acidity is fine and crisp and leads to a long, pleasant finish. A pleasant wine that promises to develop a stunning complexity with time.

The colour is a relatively pale straw-yellow, and its aromas express minerality. Notes of gingerbread and anise give it plenty of character. The nose starts with scents of vanilla, mingled with those of citrus. On the palate, the taste of peach blossoms, followed by richness and unctuousness in the mouth. This wine is well-balanced, silky and and packed...
