The Chasselay family proudly claims winemaking ancestry back to 1464. In recent years, the domain has bolstered its reputation by committing to responsible farming techniques (gaining organic certification in 2006). They use no chemical products in the field and foster biodiversity with hedgerows and wildflower borders. Vinification takes place with indigenous yeasts, and little to no sulfites are added. While Chasselay vineyards in the Beaujolais Cru villages of Brouilly, Fleurie, and Morgon continue to shine, the domain also produces a line of more affordable—and still excellent—Beaujolais reds, whites, and rosés. This “quatre saisons” cuvée reflects all of the careful attention and expertise that Chasselay is known for, at a great value. It undergoes 15 days of whole cluster maceration and is aged in foudre, retaining a beautiful degree of freshness and lift. Medium bodied, and “mildly-wild” in character, its black raspberry, cherry, and cedar flavors meld with refreshing acidity, well-integrated tannins, and touches of sun-warmed wildflowers and earthy forest aromas. Organically grown, low-intervention/natural wine, vegan.
