Notes from the Importer: Paul Henri Thillardon is one of the youngest winemakers in Beaujolais. Together with his sister Aude (office) and brothers Jean Babtist (vineyard) and Charles (co-partner), he manages a 12-hectare wine estate in the wine village of Chénas.
They rented their first vineyard, which they organically cultivated. When they were able to buy the plot in 2008, they were immediately certified organic. In 2012 they bought the "climat" (vineyard) Chassignol, right behind the house in the steep hills. They have now received the biodynamic certificate for more than six years.
