Domaine Berrod, Beaujolias

“This is Beaujolais at its very best,” comments Robert Parker, summarizing Berrod’s style, “and it gets my highest recommendations.”

Founded in 1954, this 22 hectare family domaine is masterfully run by René Berrod and his daughter and two sons.

The vineyard sites are spread across 3 communes: Fleurie, Moulin à Vent and Beaujolais Villages to offer a range of terroirs. 

The Fleurie comes from a steep, southwest-facing slope with 50 year old vines on average.

Harvest tends to come early in this region, and Berrod hand-picks only perfectly mature fruit.

Berrod looks for pure elegance in his Fleurie, a wine redolent of violets and ripe red fruits which Parker characterizes as an "explosively fruity, rich, velvety Fleurie."
