Our oenologists' opinion
Garnet colour with black reflections. Beautiful frank and straight nose of cherry syrup, lilac, notes of candied ginger and liquorice. Good balance, full-bodied, vinous, finesse, nice character on floral, spicy notes, ripe, wrapped tannins, nice straightforward lengthening.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
Do you know ?
Very well established in Burgundy, the wine merchants play an essential role in the marketing of wines. These houses are made up of experts who establish contracts with winegrowers to buy their harvests. The wine is then vinified and marketed by the négociant. This profession requires a thorough knowledge of viticulture in order to select only the best plots of land. Wine merchant houses are often passed down from generation to generation.
Domain and appellation
Domaine des Billards
Although Jean Loron was the first in the family line to practise winemaking in 1711, the maison was formally established by his grandson Jean Marie Loron in 1821. This brand is now an international success thanks to wines that are memorable for their consistency and longevity.
- Terroir: The Maison Jean Loron spreads across 135 hectares of vines located in 6 different domains across Macon and Belleville sur Saone and produced under 6 different appellations. The Domaine des Billards is produced by the Loron family since the 17th century under the Saint-Amour appellation, the Beaujolais furthest north A.O.C.
- Viticulture: A contract established with over 50 winegrowers as well as a thorough selection process contribute to only obtain qualitative grapes.
- Vinification: The Burgundy winemaking process occurs in oak barrels and stainless steel tanks with bâtonnage (stirring). The red wines are issued from a state-of-the-art vat room called Le Cellier de la Vauxonne.
