Domaine de Vernus Description

Domaine de Vernus was created in 2019 by Frédéric Jametton, who'd been looking to start a winery for some time: initially interested in the south, he became convinced it was too hot and landed on the Beaujolais after discussions with his friend, Guillaume Rouget of Flagey-Echézeaux, who agreed to come on board as a consultant. Jametton has pieced together some 12.5 hectares of vineyards, acquired from fully 12 different proprietors, and is gradually restructuring parcels that are overly difficult to cultivate, with a view to more sustainable farming in the future.

A smoky, toasty patina to the wines that certainly lends them a Côte d'Orien accent, and purists who can't stomach oak in their Gamay will find it obtrusive; yet the quality of the barrels means that their influence is more classy than vulgar, and I found the results quite persuasive. Certainly, the style is quite singular and represents a new and interesting expression for the region. 

Wine Advocate: 92+ Points

The 2020 Moulin-à-Vent Les Vérillats is also quite structured, wafting from the glass with scents of cherries, sweet spices, burning embers and orange rind. Medium to full-bodied, broad and concentrated, with lively acids, a tightly wound core of fruit and a saline finish, it will reward a bit of bottle age.
