With several generations of family tradition passed from father to son for over a century, finding an organic wine from Beaujolais has been one of our longer searches. But the search for light in the tunnel is finally here!
A lovely wine that is garnet-coloured with purple highlights. This organic wine contains a large array of fruit aromas dominated by ripe red berries. Some spicy and earthy notes as well.
It is fruity and well-balanced with a smooth minerality and excellent structure making this very easy to drink.

Situated 25 minutes from Lyon in the South of the Beaujolais region in the village of Bully. This winery that was created in 1870 that has been passed down from father to son for 5 generations ever since. Today the estate is run by Gautier Marion alongside his father. They aim to produce wine that is respectful of tradition and in harmony with the environment, which has led them to produce a certified Organic Beaujolais.
Working in respect for the environment, Gautier is keen to show that even the most traditional of French regions can produce wine in an organic fashion.
After a manual harvest, carbonic maceration takes about four days. The grapes are then slowly pressed and a cold and traditional vinification is performed. Fermented and aged in cement tank.
