Delightful varietal

Vendange Maison MommessinA well demarcated terroir; Beaujolais is closely identified with the Gamay grape that reigns here in undisputed master.

To the North this grape varietal gives way to Chardonnay when it comes up against limestone soils. To the South it gives way to the chalk-clay soils that surround the metropolis of Lyon.

Because it is the grapes themselves that hold the key to the wealth of our wines, respect of the fruit is the founding principle that holds sway over each step of our winemaking. Our House chose to minimize human intervention and to ban chemical processes. Humans are in the service of the grapes.
