Château de Grand Pré is a family estate located in the southern part of Burgundy, in the communes of Fleurie and Villié-Morgon. It was purchased by Louis and Renée Bertrand in 1972. In the 90s, their children, interested in low-intervention winegrowing, took over the vineyard, and by 2000 they had stopped using chemicals entirely in the vineyard. The wines are un-fined and unfiltered. Certified organic.
100% Gamay from 50 year old vines planted in decomposed rock and crumbly schist soil. No added sulfites during the vinification. The wine is aged on its lees for 3 to 4 months in 3 to 5 year old barrels. A structured and balanced red with aromas of bright red fruits and chalky tannins. The cellaring potential is 3 to 9 years and the wine deserves a little aging to reach its peak. Serve at 55-60 F.
