Vinification which respect the terroir

Burgundian winemaking

Each terroir is vinified separately

In total, the Maison Loron vinifies 22 hectares of vines in three appellations: Morgon AOC (our Chateau de Bellevue), Moulin à Vent AOC and Fleurie AOC. These 22 hectares are harvested by hand to meet the aromatic maturity of each area.

The two hillsides (sandy clay), facing south, provide distinct characteristics: the place called les Charmes has a manganese content which gives a remarkable typicality. It is complemented by a more filtering soil (gravel) of the Clos.

Burgundian winemaking

Grapes are sorted out directly in the vineyard and then at the winery on a sorting table.. The grapes are gently destemmed to avoid crushing the berries. The berries are then gently introduced into the vats with lift. Maceration can last up to 30 days: Burgundian winemaking. A part is aging in oak barrels.
