    100% Chardonnay. Aged several months on fine lees, partly in 350-litres barrels and partly in vats.

    Nose of flowers and white fruits: acacia and pear; on the palate, the impression is fresh, pure, with a citrus finish: grapefruit and lemon. Delicious served cold as aperitif, it can also perfectly accompany seafood, sushi, grilled fish and poultry.

    In southern Burgundy, the important Mâcon-Villages Appellation covers over 3,000 hectares and is made up of 40 villages. Our Mâcon-Villages 'Mémoire du Terroir' comes partly from our Milly-Lamartine vineyards, which we supplement with carefully selected plots from the best clay-limestone terroirs of the Mâconnais. Our perfect knowledge of the Mâconnais vineyards enables us to produce this cuvée which is the Memory of its Terroir.

    Located in Milly-Lamartine, Domaine de la Rochette comprises 10 hectares planted mainly with Chardonnay (AOP Mâcon-Milly-Lamartine and Mâcon-Bussières) and Pinot Noir (AOP Bourgogne Rouge). There is also a small parcel of old vines of AOP Bourgogne Aligoté.The vineyard is located at altitude around 400 m, and the soils are made up of shallow, well-drained white limestone and pebbles, covered with a fine layer of brown clay. These remarkable terroirs enable the production of high-quality, fine and elegant white and red Burgundies.

    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...
