Beaujolais Blanc

In 1960 he decided to acquire more vine-growing land in the Chablis appellation and planted vines in the commune of Courgis. This added to the domaine 3 ha of premier cru vines in the climats of Mont-Mains, Côte de Cuissy, and Côte de Jouans.
When Jacques and his wife Andrée retired in 1992, they handed the reins to their son-in-law Renato Fabrici.
It was then that the domaine acquired its present name, "Domaine de la Tour", a reference to the church tower at Chitry-le-Fort. The domaine's future is now in the safe hands of Renato and his son Vincent.

The Domaine de la Tour is the product of a long tradition of wine-growing and wine- making. It has been in Chalmeau family for two hundred years. The domaine was founded by Auguste Chalmeau in 1820 with just half a hectare of land in the village of Chitry-le-Fort. When his grandson Jacques took over a century later, it consisted of two hectares growing Aligoté and Sacy grapes.

We realised this wine as the traditional method, it has low alcohol content 9%. There is no residual sugar, the sweet comes from only the berries picked up at an optimum maturity. We vinify our wine in order to make a fruity cuvee. Fermentation is blocked by cold temperature, then clarified and bottled to obtain bubbles. a few weeks later, these bottles are poured out then filled up with the same wine before corked and muzzled. No liquor, only natural wine! This fresh and fruity red wine is to be served chilled. It goes along well as your "Aperitif" for all occasions.
