Chardonnay represents less than 3% of grapes grown in the Beaujolais where it is grown on granite soils. This terroir produces a Chardonnay of great finesse combining a soft minerality with revealing notes of white flowers and acacia on the nose and yellow fruits, notably mirabelle plums, in the mouth. Henry Fessy have 1 hectare of Chardonnay vines on their domaine.

Floral aromas together with delicious tones of exotic fruits. In the mouth the wine is dry, round and mellow with exotic fruit flavours, a lively attack which reveals aromas of white flowers, pear and peach. Smooth, the wine is well-balanced with hints of dried fruits on the rounded finish.

Their lighter body, moderate alcohol levels and affinity with a wide range of ingredients and cuisines makes them the perfect everyday wine.

Henry Fessy's roots lie in the late 19th century when the Fessy family moved from the Loire Valley and began growing grapes in Beaujolais. They founded their business in 1888 and over the years developed a successful enterprise as a grower, negociant and winemaker.

In 2008 the Fessy family sold to the family-owned Burgundian wine producer Maison Louis Latour. With Louis Latour’s support the company has prospered and significant investment in their domaine and facilities has followed. In 2009 Louis Latour appointed winemaker Laurent Chevalier to lead the business.
