Château de Bellevue

A stately 19th century residence, the Château de Bellevue overlooks the village of Villé-Morgon at the heart of the Beaujolais wine-growing region in the south of Burgundy. Since it was built, the Château has evolved to the rhythm of the Morgon appellation.

Château de Bellevue encompasses 15 hectares of Crus du Beaujolais. The unique and magical winery has been specially designed so that each parcel has the most suitable container for the maceration of its berries. To retain the identity and expression of the terroirs and show the diversity of Gamay Noir, the climats are vinified individually. The aim is to offer a vibrant and varied range of wines with a pure, aromatic expression and fine tannins.
