CHÂTEAU DE LA CHAIZE APPELLATION MAP
BACKGROUND

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 reflects the perfect equation between the soil, the grape and the know-how of the estate.

WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES

Selected plots with East/South-East sunny exposure. Clay and granite soils. The sole Gamay grape is perfect in order to achieve balanced, supple and aromatic wines.

TASTING NOTES

Pale pink color, bright and glossy. Flowery aromas together with a tinge of grapefruit. Round and fruity taste. This rosé makes for a great aperitif and pairs well with salads, lightly spiced dishes and grilled meats.
