Domaine Amaury

IN THE HEART OF BEAUJOLAIS

Domaine Amaury is located in the heart of Beaujolais. The wines produced are:

  • Beaujolais-village and  Brouilly, two French wines with  the AOC label  (controlled designation of origin, equivalent of PDO)
  • The Coteaux-Bourguignons, whose name is reserved for the red and white wines produced inside the area defined and bounded by the ​​appellation name.

Preserving and maintaining traditions and values, the owners of Domaine Amaury, men used to working in the vineyards, also show great interest in new techniques.

Thanks to oenological practices and follow-up, the Domain has been  awarded numerous medals and rewards:

As the domain supports manual harvesting, seasonal harvesters lend a hand to the vine growers to pick up the grapes.

During the process of winemaking and ageing, a delectable combination of traditional and new methods is achieved.

Domaine d’Azenay

This is the Domaine of Georges Blanc, the famous Michelin-starred chef in the small village of Vonnas.

In 1985, Georges Blanc bought the Domaine d’Azé or Azenay, located in the Macon region. He transformed the uncultivated land into an all  Chardonnay 17- hectare vineyard (42 acres). The wines of Domaine d’Azenay are: Fleur d’Azenay, Macon village, Blanc d’Azenay, Macon Azé, Or d’Azenay, Bourgogne Blanc (an exceptional vintage), Brut d’Azenay et Crémant de Bourgogne. To these can be  added all the wines that Georges Blanc sells in his shop …

The production varies, according to the different vintages, between 100, 000 and 150,000 bottles.

As a child, Georges Blanc liked to accompany his father in the vineyards of Burgundy to find the best vintages to serve in the family restaurant. It is thus no surprise that right from the start, he took things to heart and used the latest wine techniques  to produce high quality wines

Domaine Château Saint-Bénézet

VALLÉE DU RHÔNE

Domaine Saint-Bénézet is located in the town of Saint-Gilles, at the southern end of the Rhône valley, between Nimes and the Mediterranean Sea (aka “La Grande Bleue”). The Domain produces:

  • The “Costière de Nîmes red AOP” (= PDO) and the “Costière de Nîmes rosé AOP” (Grenache noir / Syrah / Cinsault);
  • The wines of the Pays d’OC [Languedoc-Roussillon -Southern France- 4 ‘departments’ which border the Mediterranean] : white (Sauvignon / Vermentino / Grenache blanc), rosé (Grenache / Syrah) or red (Grenache / Syrah or Merlot / Cabernet).

When it was acquired in 1999 by Mr. Michel Bosse-Platière and Mr. Jean Pierre Soulairac, the domain occupied 80 hectares (about 200 acres) of vines. Run today by Mrs Elise Bosse-Platière and Mr Yann Soulairac, it covers more than 200 hectares (about 500 acres).

It is worth noting that over the years, the Domain has spread, in particular due to acquiring new properties such as the vineyards of Silex and Fonteuil (in the village of Gallician), the vineyards of Haut Broussan and the Aveyans (in the village of Bellegarde) and the castle Bellefontaine (66 hectares / ≈ 160 acres / in the municipality of Franquevaux).

Numerous restructuring programs, successive overhauls and regular improvements have also allowed this remarkable extension of the Château Saint Bénezet estate.

The Domain meets the requirements to use “Terra vitis”: a unique national label certifying sustainable viticulture.

This guarantees respect for the terroir and the environment.

Domaine De Rothschild

The Rothschild family was rooted in the Bordeaux vineyards in 1868, and to this day owns the Lafite Rothschild, Duhart-Milon, L’Évangile and Rieussec Castles. In addition to the wines from their prestigious vineyards, the Barons de Rothschild have for years developed a range of more accessible wines: the “Reserves of the Barons”, so named because they were originally created, at the asks close friends and family. It is to perpetuate the spirit of these Reserves that the Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) decided to decline them in four major Bordeaux appellations: Bordeaux, Bordeaux Blanc, Médoc and Pauillac. By creating the “Collection”, DBR (Lafite) is part of the desire to offer classic Bordeaux with immediate charm. An exceptional terroir.
