Domaine Pardon et Fils

The passion for wine and the vine have been associated with the Pardon family since 1820, when Antoine Joseph Pardon, a wine-grower at l’Ermitage in the commune of Régnié Durette, was already producing and selling his wines in France and throughout Europe.

Chiroubles is the highest of the Beaujolais 10 Cru vineyards where the vines grow at an altitude of between 250 and 450 metres. The grapes enjoy the slightly cooler temperatures but many more hours on sunshine. The soil is characterized by sandstone and granite, which help to create finesse in the wines. The grapes then go through a short semi carbonic maceration. The process lasts 8-12 days, where the whole berries are placed in stainless steel and cement before pressing, where they macerate under carbonic pressure. After this, the malolactic fermentation begins, which is a natural second fermentation used for red wines, where hard malic acid (“malo”) is converted into the softer lactic acid (“lactic”). The wine is stored for 6-8 months in tank, with the first bottling only taking place in early spring.
