    100% Chardonnay.

    The grapes are harvested manually at perfect maturity, then the pneumatic pressing is carried out taking care to promote the crushing of grape skins, the compounds of which are conducive to aging. The juices are then slightly clarified by simple gravity at 15°C for 24 hours. About half of the must is aged for 9 months in 228 litres Burgundian “pieces”; 1/3 approximately in new barrels, the rest in older barrels. The other part is aged on fine lees in vats with control of the temperatures to preserve maximum fruit and freshness. 

    The young Pouilly Fuisse evokes white fruit (pear, peach...) and white flowers (acacia). The wine is fresh, mineral and balanced on the palate, with a touch of honey and grapefruit on the finish. As it ages, the aromas become more complex and dense, with a hint of butter, toast and dried fruit, and the unctuous taste of honey.

    At the southernmost tip of Burgundy, the Pouilly-Fuissé appellation covers 800 ha, 194 of which will be classified as Premiers Crus from the 2020 vintage. The villages of Chaintré, Fuissé, Solutré-Pouilly and Vergisson make up its exclusive production area, in an exceptional natural setting: the world-famous rocks of Solutré and Vergisson, Jurassic limestone spurs culminating at 495m and classified as a "Grand Site de France".

    In conversion to organic farming, Château de Beauregard's 19 hectares are spread over the 3 villages of Fuissé, Solutré-Pouilly and Vergisson, making Château de Beauregard's Pouilly-Fuissé highly representative of the appellation's typicity.

    For more than 20 years we step by step set up a sustainable viticulture without chemical inputs, encouraging biological life in the soil and biodiversity in the environment of the vines: in 2013 Château du Clos has been one of the first of the Pouilly-Fuissé estates to become organic certified. Domaine Joseph Burrier has got this certification in 2021, and the whites of Château de Beauregard in 2022. In addition from 2012 we started to replant many hedges around our vineyards.

    Our ambition is to reveal in our wines the individual expression of the Terroirs and Parcels. In that goal, we adapt our viticulture practices to each plot, a sort of ‘Haute Couture’ viticulture, and at the winery, our winemaking is patient, natural and low-interventionist, in order to allow the expression of the individual style of the terroirs and parcels with precision and purity.

    Domaine Joseph Burrier has a long history going back to 15th century.

    In 1407 it is mentioned a witness named Jehan BURRIER at the famous trial to fix the border between Burgundy (Duchy) and Beaujolais (Kingdom of France). In 1469, a Royal Sergeant named BURRIER is sent by King of France Louis the 11th to maintain order in the district of La-Chapelle-de-Guinchay, adjacent village to Moulin-à-Vent. Their descendants became winegrowers in this part of Beaujolais. 

    Frédéric Marc Burrier succeeded to his father Jacques in 1999 and started a policy of purchase or farming of new vineyards (2003 : Domaine Georges Burrier, 2007 : Domaine Joseph Burrier, 2012 : Château du Clos, 2016 Domaine de la Rochette). He also promoted a viticulture without chemical inputs and nowadays most of the vineyards are organic cultivated. From 2004 to 2020 he leads the UNION of the Pouilly-Fuissé growers which has successfully managed the recognition of 22 Pouilly-Fuissé Premiers Crus.

    With Julien, Baptiste and Bérenger Burrier, respectively nephew and sons of Frédéric, it is the 7th generation arriving in the managing team of Château de Beauregard and Maison Burrier today. The story continues...
