Mâconnais, Burgundy, France
Located in the south of Burgundy, in the Mâconnais region, the Pouilly Fuissé Appellation is situated where the relief becomes more marked, around the rocky cliffs of Vergisson and Solutré-Pouilly, on the slopes of Mount Pouilly and the cirque of Fuissé, on the Beauregard plateau and the heights of Chaintré. Grand Beauregard is an ‘assemblage’ of the best ‘Terroirs’ of Fuissé, Pouilly and Vergisson.
The vines for this wine are on average 40 years old and the grapes are 100% hand picked. The Grand Beauregard of Château de Beauregard, produced for the first time in 1999 as a homage to Joseph Burrier, is a strict selection of the very best barrels from the finest ‘Climats’ of the estate. Generally, it is the ‘assemblage’ (blend) of one barrel of the following ‘Climats’ : ‘Vers Cras’, ‘La Maréchaude’, ‘Aux Charmes’, ‘Les Insarts’, ‘Vignes Blanches’, ‘Vers Pouilly’, ‘Les Chardonnets’, ‘Les Châtaigniers’. The Grand Beauregard ages for 20 months in oak ‘pièces’ and is bottled without fining nor filtration. With an extraordinary aromatic power, this great white Burgundy surprises by its balance between maturity and minerality revealed by the long cask aging. This unique cuvee gives solely 2370 bottles per vintage. It will blossom in a good cellar for more than 10 years and beyond for the great vintages.
