Located at the southernmost tip of wine-producing Burgundy, the Beaujolais is a region that cannot be ignored. Thanks to Beaujolais Nouveau, this appellation is now famous around the world. But beyond the festive attributes of this wine, it is also a great terroir and the birthplace of the Gamay grape, which fully expresses itself here more than anywhere else. The granite-based soils of the Monts du Beaujolais showcase the characteristics and full potential of this varietal. This part of Burgundy has a warmer climate than the others, which has an influence on the characteristics of the wines. They offer gorgeous, round aromas and intense fruit flavours with plenty of nuances.
The nose is both fine and intense with floral notes of violet and peony, enhanced by the fruitiness that is characteristic of Gamay. The palate is refreshing and fleshy, subtle yet full-bodied featuring red fruit flavours. The finish is long, refreshing and ends on a fruity note.
Bourgogne Aligoté is an appellation produced throughout Burgundy, especially in the Auxerre region, the Côte Chalonnaise (Chalon-sur-Saône region), the Hautes-Côtes de Beaune and Hautes-Côtes de Nuits.
The nose reveals a dominance of floral aromas with hints of white flowers which evolve into mineral, fruity notes with a discreet almond note. Fresh and nervy, this wine is well-balanced with a refreshing and persistent finish
Our Burgundy Chardonnay “Secret de Famille” is produced with vines located in Côte d’Or region only, around extremely well-located vineyards on the outskirts of the villages well-known for their white wines (St Aubin, Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet…). We treat these wines as if they were white village from the Côte de Beaune where the yields are low of course, with perfectly appropriate ageing.
The nose is dominated by hints of citrus and white flowers, and evolve in notes of honey and dried fruits. The mouth is very balanced, skillfully blending vivacity and roundness.
Built in 1298 as a military fortress for the Dukes of Burgundy, the castle has undergone major transformations over the centuries. The particularly remarkable 75-metre-long winery and cellars, built in 1728, are still in use today. Château de Dracy’s wines have been distributed by Albert Bichot since 1905, a classic example of a long-term partnership! The vineyards are located in Couches in the northern part of Burgundy’s Saône-et-Loire department, adjacent to the Côte de Beaune.
The nose is floral and the palate straightforward, supple and well balanced with beautiful minerality. The finish is velvety with a hint of hazelnut.
The Côte d’Or is the heart of Burgundy where the most prestigious wines of the region are produced. In order to highlight this exceptional terroir, the extended name of “Bourgogne Côte d’Or” has been created in 2017. Our red “Secret de Famille” (Family Secret) comes from this very limited and specific geographical area; it is indeed crafted from a carefully sourced blend of grapes ( vineyards situated in renowned villages like Chambolle-Musigny, Nuits-Saint-Georges, Marsannay…). We treat these wines as “Villages” wines, with a “haute-couture” vinification and ageing.
This charming wine features predominant fruity aromas of blackcurrant and wild red berries. Velvety and silky, this wine boasts soft, balanced structure on the palate, which ends with a delicately perfumed finish.

Fruity nose with notes of forest undergrowth and a hint of toast. Soft and delectable, this is a well-balanced wine with good substance and well-integrated tannins. Lovely fruit and liquorice on the finish.
Our Crémant de Bourgogne Pure is the perfect reflection of its origin: carefully selected Côte-d’Or vines. These terroirs produce wines, whose exceptional qualities allow an ambitious ageing. A big part of this cuvee is vinified and aged in oak barrels; this is exceptional for the sparkling wines.
Very fine, even bubbles. Discreet hints of white blossoms and a nice minerality. It is lively and the mouth is fresh and delicate. This Crémant Blanc de Blancs is the purest expression of its terroir.
The variety of the grapes and the choice of their origins are the result of our constant search for balance. The Chardonnay brings tension, white flowers and minerality; the Pinot Noir brings fruit, density and vinosity. This cuvee owes its originality to our savoir-faire, bringing together the vinosity of the base wines and the tension due to the light dosage of this Crémant Brut.
Fine, even bubbles. The nose boasts notes of citrus (lime, pink grapefruit) and white blossoms which pave the way for vivacity and freshness on the palate.
Clean and precise with beautiful length.
