Soil Specificity

The soils of Beaujolais are divided into a northern and southern half, with the town of Villefranche-sur-Saône being in between. The northern half comprises of most of the Crus of Beaujolais with schist, granite and limestone based soils. The best plots are located on hillsides, with most of the granite and schist, leaving the lower slopes with more stone and clay. The southern half of the region has flatter land with richer, sandstone and clay based soils with some limestone patches.

A Passionate Lineage

Domaine des Nugues is located in the northern Beaujolais, surrounded by the Crus of Fleurie, Morgon, and Moulin à vent. This estate is in the Gellin family for three generations. Gérard and his son Gilles cultivate the old vines of Gamay and Chardonnay to produce the best expression of terroir. The average age of vines is quite old, 50 years old, with some vines being 100 years old and more. As keeping with the finest tradition of the region, all fruit is hand-harvested and whole-cluster vinified.
