The Château de Grand Pré comprises a beautiful 18th Century castle complete with vaulted cellars, a “lieu dit” vineyard and an 8 hectare family Domaine in the Beaujolais region.
The winery is located in the heart of Fleurie where they own six hectares of vineyards, with a further two hectares in the village of Morgon. Born winegrowers, Louis and Renée Bertrand bought the domaine in 1972, the vines were old and the cellars were in ruins. They took the estate in hand and gave it a new lease of life, replanting and rebuilding.
Today it is run by their children, Guy and his wife Annick; Christine and her husband Claude Zordan and their grandson Romain Zordan. The entire family passionately carries on the traditions that started three generations ago. Romain Zordan has brought a modern and organic approach, tending the vines with a complete respect for the environment and using sustainable techniques. The estate has been certified Organic since 2012.
These are wines of purity and precision, a true expression of their Beaujolais terroir.
Rich, powerful and balanced, with an appealing nose of raspberries, cherries and a hint of smokiness. The ripe red fruits combine with powerful tannins on the palate with a long, firm finish.
Match with charcuterie, patés, terrines, rillettes and game dishes such as pigeon.
