This beautiful red Burgundy in the Pinot Noir variety offers a sparkling ruby red colour. The aroma shows signs of blackcurrant with wild strawberries and a touch of fern and wood. In the mouth it is honest and light, well balanced with fine tannins. Fruity and vegetal tones give the wine a beautiful freshness and a pleasant length on the palate.
The 20 hectares of vines are situated in the village of Ville-sur-Jarnioux at the heart of the region of Pierre Dorées in the South of Burgundy. The plots are planted at an altitude of 400m on soils consisting of many clays accompanied by siliceous pebbles.
Traditional Burgundian vinification in de-stemmed grapes with a long maceration of 20 days. Maturing on fine lees, in barrel and in stainless steel vats.
Jean Loron was born in Chénas in 1711. He developed his business as a wine grower by vinifying specific “climats” of Beaujolais and of Bourgogne. In 1821 his grandson Jean-Marie Loron developed the estate further and began a wine merchant business. His son Jacques succeeded him and merged his business with that of his father-in-law Charlet in 1852.
The Charlet family, who had been wine merchants in Saint-Amour and Juliénas in the 18th century, also owned the “Clos des Billards” at Saint-Amour. Nowadays the business is managed by the eighth generation of the family. The quality and reliability of their wines are internationally renowned, their strong image of durability and longevity contributing to their excellent reputation. Maison Jean Loron is the only wine merchant to specialise (80%) in Beaujolais and Bourgogne wines, exporting them throughout the world.
For many years, Maison Jean Loron have had an exceptional reputation thanks to their winemaking savoir-faire.
