Raphael is particularly proud of this single-vineyard old vine Beaujolais Blanc from this aptly named Chardonnay vineyard between the winery and the now famous La Galoche stream planted in the 1950s. It's possible to label Chardonnay from this region as Bourgogne Blanc, but Raphael is firmly committed to the Beaujolais Blanc appellation.
