AOC Brouilly

Beaujolais

Discover the legend of the Pisse-Vieille A clear and bold colour. A direct nose with notes of red jam and toasted notes.The attack is direct. A wine with body, with notes of stoned fruit (cherry, Morello cherry) and liquorice. Wonderful balance with tannins that are full of finesse. Wonderful length.The silky and complex palate points to a bright future.Can be aged for 8 years. Manual harvesting. Aged for 14 months in oak casks. This so unique climate owes its reputation to a legend: a deeply religious winemaker regularly visited a priest for confession, to confess her sins to him.However, she never had anything particularly serious to report.It was for this reason that, one day, the priest released her, saying, : "Go! And sin no more!" ».However, being hard of hearing, she heard, : "Go! And pee no more!" ».It should be mentioned that in the Beaujolais dialect, the two words sound very similar. You can imagine what followed.The old lady was only relieved from her ordeal when her husband, in his concern, went to see the priest to ask for clarification.And he returned home shouting from the bottom of the hill, Pisse vieille, pisse vieille, le curé l'a dit !" (Pee old lady, pee old lady, the priest said to pee!) ».

DOMAINE BERTRAND

69220 Charentay - Beaujolais

Beaujolais wine-growers down the generations since 1956, we are continuing our family tradition in Charentay, at the foot of the Brouilly hills.Today, Domaine Bertrand extends over more than 15 ha in Charentay, in the heart of the Beaujolais region, as far as Juliénas, in the north of the region.With rigorous work on the vine and manual harvests, we bring careful attention to the creation of our different vintages, from the Gamay grape for our red wines and Chardonnay for the whites.Various projects are currently underway in order to continue to develop our estate, in particular with our conversion to organic production, the modernisation of the vat room, improvements to the vinification process and the renovation of our tasting cellar.Our objective is to offer great Beaujolais wines, with personality and well-defined character, which you will enjoy, and which express the diversity and richness of our terroirs.
