Pasquier Desvignes

At the centre of the Côtes du Rhône, Beaujolais & Bourgogne AOCs...

The Château Saint Laurent d’Arpaye

 

Ideally located in Fleurie, at the crossroads of these three great production regions, the Quinson family has owned the Château Saint Laurent d’Arpaye since 1904.


It has made its estate the eulogist of the Fleurie appellation, a Côte du Rhône appreciated under the “Chemin des Papes” label, the whole range of a generous Burgundy and all of the generic Beaujolais productions, villages and Crus, not forgetting the iconic Beaujolais nouveau.

 

The nature of the soils

From the sedimentary clay-limestone terrain of the Maconnais, we move sharply to an area of highly diversified primary rocks (granite, gneiss, schist) superficially broken down into gravel and sandy earth (arena) and very highly enriched with metalliferous dykes: diorite, manganese and iron.

From the 17th century, contemporaries observed that the wine grew better here than elsewhere.

 

Planting and the nature of the wines

A 100% Gamay wine is matured in the Château’s vaulted cellars, with a beautiful deep ruby colour and deep purple glints, produced from our extremely old vines.

The pleasant aromas of dark berry fruit, mature raspberries and peonies accompanied by hints of white flowers blend with the tight tannins on the palate. This long and elegant wine may be kept for 4 to 5 years and accompanies white meats, small feathered game and cheese.
