This charming and bucolic estate is situated on the hillside of La Madone. Their oldest vines, some over 100 years of age, are situated on the upper slopes just beneath the little chapel after which the hillside is named.
It has been run by the Despres Family for 5 generations; today Maryse and Jean-Marc run this 13ha estate which is ideal situated on the pink granite soils of the area. They run the domaine on organic principles as well as minimising the use of sulphur in their wines. The wines are vinified using traditional Beaujolais whole bunch fermentation techniques. They also own the Niagara Estate a 5.6ha single vineyards estate on the uplands of the Fleurie area.
