Although Beaujolais has a vinous history that goes way back, there is currently a sizeable contingent of young Winemakers aged between 25 and 35 that are pushing the boundaries and breaking many, if not all, of the rules that went before.
These dynamic men and women are shaping today’s Beaujolais (both Cru and Villages) and paving the way to a glorious future for a region that for many has fallen out of favour over the past few decades.
American Winemaker Kerrie de Boisseau and her French husband Xavier are certainly part of this new breed.
At Château Lavernette on the Beaujolais/Macon border they are producing some superb biodynamically farmed red and white wines that are sure to please the palates of even the most jaded Beaujolais critic.
