Château de La Chaize

Brouilly 2022



A blend of select vineyard sites owned by Chaize, situated around the historic Château, this flagship cuvée stands as the epitome of the estate’s excellence. Each parcel undergoes individual vinification, ensuring meticulous attention to detail and preserving its unique qualities. Representing the essence of the Brouilly Cru du Beaujolais, renowned for its deep granite soil ideal for Gamay grapes, this wine captivates with a harmonious blend of complexity and fruity aromas, embodying the essence of its terroir with unparalleled finesse.


Each plot is vinified separately. Fermentation in stainless steel, accompanied by semi-carbonic maceration. 10% whole cluster fermentation.


A fiercely hot and dry summer in 2022 led to reduced yields, but the concentrated fruit from the arid conditions resulted in fantastically rich and flavorful wines.


James Suckling - May 17, 2024 “A fragrant and delightful Brouilly that's juicy and subtle. Elegant, medium-bodied palate. Lively acidity and soft tannins for the 2022 vintage. The aromas and the balance are fantastic."
