Winegrowers association Beaujolais-Bourgogne

For the Romy family, wine has been a family tradition that began in 1700. The napoleonic land registry of 1815 proves moreover that all the plots were crashed by vineyards on the village of Morancé, in this beautiful areas of Pierres Dorées.

The Estate took an interesting turn in the 2000s. Nicolas, the enthusiastic heir to his family’s passion, returned to the estate after visiting vineyards all over the world, looking for other winemaking experiences. His creativity and his ideas however had to adapt to the legal and family framework.

Beaujolais Nouveau was enjoying a boom, but Nicolas took a different stance and decided to produce rosé Beaujolais. He also planted new grape varieties, including Chardonnay on suitable soils and pursued the idea of making fruity white wines, of stronger character.

In details

Area • 30 hectares

Grape varieties • Gamay Noir, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay

Appellations • Beaujolais AOP, Beaujolais Rosé AOP, Bourgogne AOP

Distinguishing features • 4 hectares of Chardonnay in the Clos de La Chapelle area of Golden Stones!

Vines are located in the Golden Stones area, also called “The French Tuscany”, on chalky-clayey soils of ochre-yellow color. This kind of soil is also particularly suited for the culture of Chardonnay grape.

Nicolas has also have done  a geologic expertise by a renowned geobiologist which proves to him that certain plots of land of his vineyards possess the same characteristics as to Volnay, in Burgundy. That’s why he had the idea to plant some Pinot noir grapes, the 1st harvest of which was made in 2015.

The philosophy of the estate is to work precisely, adopting farming practices half-way between reasonable and organic. Domaine Romy has been a firm supporter and member of the Terra Vitis farming approach for 10 years: “the pleasure of wine from healthy, living soil”.

Nicolas adapts the vine yields to the potential for each plot, producing healthy and ripe fruit and getting the most flavour too.The next stage is to preserve all this potential during vatting, for each plot. All the work is focused on the grape.

Nicolas believes in the diversification and built his reputation by cultivating and vinifying various grapes according to the soil of each of his plots of land. A trophy of the gastronomy of Lyon gleaned in 2008 as ” Wine grower of the year ” confirms it.
