WINES

Three Distinct Cuvées with Different Styles, Hand-Made with the Same Love and Care

It is in the heart of a unique terroir, on the granitic and shaly slopes of Morgon appellation in the Beaujolais region, that the wines of Château Grange Cochard have been crafted since the 18th century. A rare gem discovered by two winemaker friends, who have combined their knowledge to produce authentic wines.

Our wines are all made from our own grapes, and from vine to bottle everything is done by us within a few hundred metres of the chateau. The grape for all three is 100% Gamay Noir à Jus Blanc, the traditional variety of the region, and all three are exclusively appellation Morgon.

The great majority of our vines are over 40 years old although many have been growing for almost a century. These mature vines give us low yields of high quality small grapes bursting with structure, flavour and elegant tannins which allow us to make our award-winning wines.
