Domaine de la Grosse Pierre

Domaine de la Grosse Pierre is situated in Chiroubles, and has some small holdings in Fleurie and Morgon as well. Like many young winemakers, Pauline grew up among the vines; after a career as a sommelier in France and abroad, she returned home to carry on her parents' and grandparents' legacy. Her inaugural vintage was the 2018: a fine, bountiful vintage in Beaujolais, marked by ample fruit and fresh acidity. Domaine de la Grosse Pierre refers to the granite slopes of Chiroubles, a geologic feature that imparts an undeniable minerality to balance the bright berry notes of a grape like Gamay. Her winemaking philosophy is clearly something akin to "slow and steady wins the race" — the fermentation is semi-carbonic and occurs slowly, over the course of 12 days and at a low temperature; this helps retain the integrity of the fruit and terroir of the 50-90 year old vines. Only native yeasts are employed, and minimal SO2 (if any) is added only at bottling.
