From the vine to the wine, the search for optimum quality drives Domaine Les Roches Bleues ("The Blue Rocks"). All of their wines are made from the famous Gamay grape: pride of Beaujolais winegrowers. This fine and delicate grape variety expresses itself in many ways depending on the rich and varied terroirs of the Beaujolais vineyard.

On the Côte de Brouilly blue stones, the grapes offer notes of spicy black fruit, sometimes noticeably peppery, as well as a subtle minerality. On the pink sands and granite of Brouilly, fresh red fruits predominate.

The domaine has been restructuring its vineyard for 10 years as it transitions to full biodynamic farming. The vines are now systematically grassed in order to work the soil structure naturally, to limit erosion and above all to boost biodiversity. The entirety of the harvest is manual and respects the integrity of our grapes from vine to vat. Followers of whole bunch maceration, the winemakers adapt their practices to the conditions of the vintage to best respect the fruits that nature offers them.
