Grape variety



Site: one of the northernmost Crus of Beaujolais. The vineyard is on a steep slope.

History & tradition: this was the first vineyard to be planted in Antiquity, while the rest of the region was still covered with chestnut trees. It may get its name form Jules Caesar himself.

Soil: mixture of granite and manganese.



by Véronique Boss-Drouhin

Finesse and depth characterize this wine. Beautiful red colour with raspberry hues. The bouquet is particularly elegant, with notes of wild berries. In the mouth, the wine is fleshy, with a good structure. Long and aromatic sensation in the aftertaste.


2020 is a nice vintage which provided wines of nice intense colours. The nose and the palate are characterized by black fruits such as blackberry, cherry, mingling with liquorice and spices. The wines are rich and dense, which can offer a good ageing potential to some appellations.
