We use the short pruning method en cordon Royat for all the Gamay vines on the estate, to restrain the natural vigorous growth of this grape variety. Grown on the clayey limestone soils of the Mâconnais, this wine has very particular peppery and spicy notes. Beaumont is an emblematic cuvee of the domaine, a real Gamay with a Burgundy style.
The chef : Jean-Michel Carrette from the 1-star Michelin restaurant, Aux Terrasses in Tournus, Burgundy, has chosen a saddle of lamb from Clavisy Farm, accompanied by fennel and piment de Bresse peppers.

The sommelier : Julien Buiret has chosen Beaumont for the pairing, firstly for its juicy character that goes well with the delicacy of the lamb that is served pink, and secondly for the wine’s peppery and spicy side that reflects the fennel and piment de Bresse peppers.
This vineyard is east facing, as are all of our vineyards in Cruzille. It is situated mid-slope, with 10 000 plants/hectare, and the soil is Bathonian clayey-limestone. On this rich soil, it is important to rein in the vines in order to let the grapes reach the right maturity.
