Chignard is one of our favorite producers of Fleurie, and works in a sulfur-free manner but produces wine that is quite classically styled. They make a bottling entirely from the climat of Moriers – a small area that is right beside Moulin-à-Vent and seems to share many of its qualities.

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

RP 90
"Offering up aromas of raspberries and plums mingled with hints of rose petals and spices, the 2020 Juliénas Beauvernay is medium to full-bodied, ample and succulent, built around powdery tannins and mouthwatering acids. It's a fine rendition of this supremely dependable cuvée. This 10-hectare family domaine, its holdings dominated by Fleurie Les Moriers, is a fine source of classical Beaujolais. Before the AOC system was defined, wines from this sector were frequently traded as Moulin-à-Vent, and that makes sense when you taste them. Winemaking at this address is traditional: whole bunches and macerations that last the better part of two weeks, followed by maturation in foudre and tank. Only two cuvées are produced, and both are worthy of readers' consideration." -Robert Parker
