CHATEAU DE PIZAY
The Chateau de Pizay is one of the oldest and most
famous estates of the Beaujolais region. Since the
Middle Ages the fine wines of the Château de
Pizay have been appreciated by Beaujolais-lovers.
The oldest records date to 1030, the keep was built in
the 14th Century and the classic formal gardens were
added in the 18th Century.
The Chateau is now a luxurious hotel, with a fine
restaurant and visitors are able to visit the
magnificent old cellars that have hosted many famous
banquets. The Chateau and grounds are beautifully
maintained including a sculpted hedge garden.
The vineyard covers 180 acres in the Appellations of Morgon and Regnie. It also produces a delicious
Beaujolais Blanc and Beaujolais, all of which are bottled in the distinctive Pizay bottle. The terrain is
granite, covered with a light sandy soil, ideal for the Gamay grape.
Winemaking combines tradition, with the use of stainless steel, semi carbonic fermentation and modern
temperature control methods to ensure preservation of the fruit and freshness in the wines. The Director,
Pascal Dufaitre, is dedicated to quality and building the reputation of the Estate.
Fresh fruity and elegant with the
delicious red fruits of the Gamay grape.
The richest of the Beaujolais Crus, this
has great depth of flavor, lots of Gamay
fruit and a solid structure. Also the most
age worthy, along with Moulin-a-Vent.
