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.
A dashing, fruity rosé but with fine persistence, just as we like them!
The Affinity is produced using grapes from plots of Régnié (pink granite and sandy soil). The yield is less than 40 hl/ha.
Direct bleeding. Cold vinification. Matured in tanks.
Pale, salmon-pink robe, well on trend.
Rather "cuberdon" nose (Belgian candy, raspberry flavoured, purple).
Fairly supple in the mouth, marked by red fruits.
Aperitifs in the sun or Asian cuisine.
