Château de la Chaize in Beaujolais is a magnificent chateau and winery. It was built by Jean-François de La Chaize d'Aixim in 1676, making it one of the oldest estates in the region.
The current owners don't do things by halves. The castle was restored with great passion and expertise and now shines again in its original splendor. The wine production is now one of the best collections in the entire Beaujolais. Euphoric reviews in various trade journals confirm this, and the wine was also served at a dinner in the English royal family in 2004.
The extremely high quality is made possible and supported by ethical and ecological principles. The conversion to organic cultivation began in 2017. Château de la Chaize generates all the electrical and thermal energy it needs to be self-sufficient and CO2 neutral. The entire fleet and all devices are electrically operated. In viticulture, everything is subordinated to the pursuit of quality. After extensive soil analysis, the right Gamay clones were grown and the best type of fertilization was defined for each soil type in each plot.
Château de la Chaize produces Beaujolais Crus from the AOPs Brouilly, Côte de Brouilly, Fleurie and Morgon. The best parcels are filled separately and are among the very best Beaujolais ever. The 2020 Brouilly "Lieu-Dit La Chaize" was awarded 95/100 points by James Suckling. A white wine from Pouilly-Fuissé has recently been added to the range.
