Since 1989, Jean-Marc Burgaud and his wife Cristine have farmed 19 hectares of gamay vines in Beaujolais, primarily in Morgon and Beaujolais Villages, as well as one hectare in Régnié. Although not certified, all the farming at Burgaud is done organically and by hand, and he has not used chemicals in the vineyards in over 10 years. In 2010, he identified a plot that would be suitable for growing white grapes and planted his first chardonnay. With just a few commercial vintages in bottle, this wine feels more and more like a natural extension of Burgaud. Clean and bright with firm varietal character, we see this working well with plank-grilled salmon.
