Being Chardonnay from noble limestone and clay soils gives the wine a citrus flavor. Optimal age with slow winemaking gives oiliness and finesse. Serve cold, suitable as an aperitif or with fish, white (chicken) poultry or andouillet (sausage from all kinds of pork around Lyon).

The different vintages of the wine have won several French and international awards.

Chardonnay du Chatelard, Beaujolais AOC, Domaine du Penlois

  • White Beaujoulais wine is produced by a small number of producers in the area, and only 1-3% of the total Beaujolais wine-growing area is covered by Chardonnay grapes (from which white wine is made).
    Chatelard is the name of the hill where the grapes for this wine are made.
