Franck is one of the most unique winemakers in the Beaujolais. After he began working 4 ha of high elevation gamay vines near Jullié, which he inherited from his father-in -law, he recognized the quality of the terroir despite the fact that it was outside of the Cru designation. Franck’s stroke of brilliance was
the idea of making methode Champenoise from this amazing gamay fruit. All of his vines are farmed organically and the fruit is entirely hand-harvested. In the cellar, the sparkling wines spend anywhere from 6 months to 3 years on lees before disgorgement.
