Our Domain History
Les Beaujolais Beaujolais Blanc Collonges

Terra Vitis certification.
White Beaujolais remains little-known and is a great wine to surprise and impress your friends with. This Chardonnay is a rarity to discover. Wonderful round, rich and tatty, it delicately coats your taste buds. The aromatic complexity is due to the different types of terroirs it comes from. The particularity of this white Beaujolais is its 10% aging in acacia barrels, which gives it a light honeyed woody flavor. It will surprise you after 3 to 4 years store.

Personality of the cuvee

White Beaujolais has always been served at the table at Domaine du Vissoux for generations. Maurice Chermette, Pierre-Marie’s father, vinified it in the barrels and bottled it without filtering for the family consumption only. Those old vintages, served for Christmas with fois gras, have left us with unforgettable memories. The wine was golden, the nectar a little cloudy from the deposit, a completely atypical wine!
