Romain Zordan, the vigneron of Château de Grand Pré has Beaujolais in his veins. His father, cousin, and uncle, are all great vignerons as well. He has been making natural Beaujolais since 2009, though much of their vineyards were planted more than 60 years ago. The viticulture is performed in a way to respect the environment and allow for deep root growth leading to greater complexity of flavors and expression of terroir. The wines classically represent the region, but they also stand out from the crowd; they are must-haves for any Gamay and/or natural wine Lover.
