Oenology At the Château de Bagnols

The Vissoux Estate

Located in Saint-Vérand, in Pierres Dorées country, Martine and Pierre-Marie Chermette produce red, white and rosé Beaujolais wines, most of which come from old vines. The Vissoux Estate also produces Crémant de Bourgogne, extra-brut, brut and brut rosé, as well as homemade liqueurs made from blackcurrants and bush peaches with ginger. Integrated vine management, successively sorted fully ripe hand-picked fruit, indigenous yeasts, and the implementation of traditional semi-carbonic vinification processes are so many traditional methods used in the Beaujolais area that they have chosen to uphold to produce authentic and very characteristic wines.
Visits and tasting sessions subject to prior booking.
