Château de Durette

Jean Joly from Liège (Wallonia) fell in love with the Beaujolais region. The story goes that he took his young wife to Saint-Amour for their honeymoon in 1964 and was carried away by this land, often unjustly disparaged. In 2007, he bought a vineyard in the village of Régnié-Durette, which he renamed Château de Durette. The originality of his plan is that in a sort of cooperative spirit, good friends acquired plots of vines of different Bordeaux vintages and signed tenant farming contracts with the Château de Durette, which thus has a vineyard covering 30 hectares. They include another native of Liège, Marc Theissen, who is in charge of the day-to-day management and marketing of the estate’s wines. When Jean Joly passed away in 2014, the vineyard remained within the family. It adopts a reasoned agriculture approach.

Le Petit Cuberdon

We are so proud of this partnership with the Château de Durette! Marc Theissen and his team have elaborated for Popsss a special cuvée in the Fleurie appellation. With reference, of course, to its delicious raspberry aromas, we named it "Le Petit Cuberdon" to celebrate this belgitude that is so dear to us. 

Fleurie is said to be more feminine than the other Beaujolais vintages, particularly Côte-de-Brouilly or Moulin-à-Vent. The appellation region lies on granitic sand (mixture of granite, sand and clayey dust) which produces fine, elegant wines.

The (relatively short) vinification and the maturing took place in cement tanks. Not an ounce of wood to disrupt the crisp fruit!

   Ruby-coloured robe with slight mauvish tints.

   Nose dominated by raspberries, with light floral hints (violet, rose).

   Elegant and silky in the mouth, characterised by fine tannins. Slightly peppery hints punctuate the fruity aromas.

   Prepared cold meats, poultry and white meat.

   15-16°C
