The vineyards of Beaujolais fall on the granite rich slopes of a hilly region between Mâcon and Lyon at the southern limit of Burgundy. The only vine variety authorised for red wines is Gamay, traditionally grown as free standing bush vines.
The House of Emile Chandesais was founded in 1933 in Fontaines, at the very heart of the Cote Chalonnaise. Emile honed his winemaking skills in Beaune and towards the end of the 1970s, created Domaine Champs Perdix in Fontaines and brought back to life slopes where the quality of grapes had enjoyed a reputation similar to those found in nearby Mercurey. Emile handed the reigns over to the celebrated Maison Michel Picard in 1993 to ensure that the wines continue to be produced with Emile`s style and that are one of the finest examples of the region.
