Château de Javernand

France

Beautiful Château de Javernand is one of the most delightful wine estate sin Beaujolais. The estate is operated by Arthur Fourneau and his cousin Mathilde Penicaud, representing the fifth generation. Arthur is supported by Mathilde’s husband and his life-long friend Pierre Prost. Together, they consistently produce benchmark Chiroubles from superior vineyards, situated on what is arguably this Cru’s finest terroir. Their wines manage to be ripe, intense with rich textures and yet very refined and elegant.

The château is known for being one of the prettiest in the region. Visitors are greeted with a warm, genuine hospitality. From the beautiful treed terrace they can enjoy an amazing view of the surrounding hillside vineyards.

Château de Javernand Chiroubles Les Gatilles · Profile

This Chiroubles is an example of the new, organic/bio-dynamic philosophy that Arthur and Pierre introduced when they took over the estate in 2011. The grapes are harvested by hand to ensure that only healthy clusters are used. Natural yeasts are used for a spontaneous fermentation, following a traditional carbonic maceration. A refreshing expression of Gamay with full berry flavours, a clean acidity, and soft tannins.

A wine that works well with cassoulet, mushroom dishes, red sauce pasta, and ratatouille.

Château de Javernand Chiroubles Climax · Profile

Climax is the estate’s newest cuvée from specially selected plots and produced only in the best years. The vines are over 50 years old, producing low yields and very concentrated flavours. After a traditional maceration and fermentation, the wine is aged in oak barrels to give it an enticing complexity and richness. Tannins are more pronounced than with regular Cru Beaujolais wines, but very ripe and well- integrated. The finish is long and complex – outstanding!
