Château de la Chaize is among the oldest, most historic estates in
Burgundy’s Beaujolais region. Boasting over 250 acres of vineyards, it
is also one of the largest. The property is currently owned and
managed by the Marquise de Roussy de Sales family, who
transformed Château de la Chaize into one of the most innovative and
forward-thinking producers in the region. Among its many initiatives
is the adoption of eco-friendly winemaking practices. Château de la
Chaize is located in the Brouilly appellation, the largest of the
Beaujolais Crus and where the predominant grape planted is Gamay.

This “ Cuvée Vieilles Vignes “ is a selection of vineyards on the
estate, all 55 to 75 years, trained in gobelet or head-pruned. The
extremely low yields offer a smaller production of wine with a more
complex, concentrated structure. This Cuvée is aged in 3 to 4 yearold
oak-barrels for several months to develop complexity & finesse.

The nose reveals ripe fruit aroma with spicy elements.

Round and concentrated with a structure of silky and full-bodied tannins and an
excellent long finish.
