La Louve, the original cuvée of Domaine Gérard Brisson. La Louve comes from plots located in the heart of the Morgon appellation and crossed by the old Roman road that connected Lyon to Autun.
This wine, with its nose of red berries, develops fresh fruit aromas on the palate, drawing on the ripe fruits with the ageing.
A family-owned estate for several generations
We cultivate our 35 hectares of AOP Morgon, Regnié and Beaujolais-Villages in sustanable agriculture (Terra Vitis label).
Our vines, whose average age is 50 years (the oldest were planted in 1920 !) Have a production capacity of about 200 000 bottles.
The estate benefits from an exceptional exposure on slopes (340 meters altitude), facing south- east, on poor granitic soils.
Today, Gérard Brisson perpetuates the family heritage through winemaking and vinification using the traditional Morgon method (no thermo-vinification !).
Year after year, the results are unmistakable : the expression of a unique terroir.
Gérard Brisson is considered by his peers as one of the best winemakers in Beaujolais for the Morgon he produces.
