Description

Château du Bois de la Salle was built in the 17th century to be a picturesque home for a religious order. It was occupied by monks until 1658, when it was bought by Baron Charrier de Laroche, who was first chaplain to Napoleon 1st. The château remained in the same family until 1961, the year when Count Serres de Mesples, a descendant of Charrier de Laroche, ceded the property first, for it to become the “Cave des producteurs de Juliénas” headquarters, then for the winery itself to be set up there. A total of 83 winemakers decided to join forces to promote Beaujolais wines from there. Raoul Janin, Mayor of Jullié, rural development engineer in Lyon and vineyard owner, became the first president of this alliance.

TASTING NOTES
Pleasantly aromatic with aromas of redcurrant and violet. The palate is light with a charming, elegant structure and redcurrant fruit notes.
