France – Joseph Burrier

The Burrier family has been living in the south of Burgundy for 500 years, and has owned Château de Beauregard for six generations. The name “Beauregard,” meaning nice view, comes from the beautiful sight one enjoys from the estate which lies isolated in the middle of the vineyards, on the rocky cliffs of Solutré and Vergisson, and on the villages of Pouilly and Fuissé. The Burrier family estates (Château de Beauregard, Georges and Joseph Burrier Domains) constitute one of the major properties of southern Burgundy. Its vineyards cover 42 hectares and include 22 of Pouilly-Fuissé, 7 of Saint-Véran and 10 of Fleurie, Moulin-à-Vent, Morgon and Saint-Amour. All the white wines are vinified at Château de Beauregard and one part of the reds at the second property of the Château, the former “Tournissoux House,” situated in Fleurie. The vineyards are managed to promote microbial life in the soil and to encourage deep rooting of the vines. In the cellar the wines are allowed time to ferment slowly and to clarify naturally. It is our belief that this method enables the wines to acquire the true expression of their “Terroir.”
