Winery Notes:
Domaine J. Boulon is centrally located within the appellation at Corcelles-en-Beaujolais, just to the east of Morgon. The 26 hectare domaine is managed by Hugo Boulon who represents the 6th generation. The wines here represent classic Beaujolais wines that showcase the brilliant high-toned fruity freshness we want and expect but these wines have beautiful depth and complexity that often is absent. The vineyard work is meticulous and includes de-budding and leaf pulling to maximize quality. All the grapes are hand harvested and average 40% whole-cluster fermentation.

100% stainless steel; clay granite soil; vineyards are situated in the Northern and Southern limits of Morgon. Sweet, plush wild cherry and spice nose; lovely concentration that gives a plush fruity, velvety texture in the mouth; The finish is persistent with gentle brown stem tannins and notes of earth, smoke and juicy briary fruits.
