Domaine Chasselay, Je t'aime mais j'ai soif 2020

Our opinion: A very nice discovery! Coming from such a famous region, one would expect a traditional wine … Not at all! It is a fruity wine to drink when there is no time to talk about the terroir. A wine that is at the same time brilliant, fresh, supple, tasty and delicious. Congratulations to the Chasselay family!

Le Vigneron

“If you respect nature, she will give it back to you.” This is the philosophy of the Domaine and the Chasselay family. In other words, the best way to let a terroir and a grape express itself is to let them do it!

This is why the work of the vines and the wine is based on respect for the environment, the intrinsic quality of the fruit and the enhancement of the taste character of their wines.

Of course, none of this would be possible without high standards, rigor and a perfect knowledge of living things. These are the three essentials that allow Jean-Gilles Chasselay and his family to cultivate the vines without synthetic chemicals and to achieve natural vinification (without sulphites or oenological inputs). In short, to offer organic wines since 2006 (membership of the Organic Agriculture label – AB – controlled by the Ecocert organization)!

Domaine Chasselay covers 13 hectares, in Châtillon d’Azergues, Côte de Brouilly and Brouilly. For the past few years, they have also vinified the grapes from plots located in the Côte de Brouilly, Morgon, Fleurie, Chénas and Moulin à Vent vintages.

L'Appellation

The name “Vin de France” (VDF) was created in 2009. Any wine produced in France that is not accepted by a protected designation of origin (PDO) or by a protected geographical indication (PGI) is therefore by definition a VDF.

The most frequent reason is the grape variety of the cuvée. All PDOs and PGIs have their catalog of authorized grape varieties. Only the cultivation of these grape varieties in the defined geographical area gives entitlement to the AOC or IGP. Otherwise, we are a VDF.

Another reason may be the place in which the vine was planted. If the plot is not on a terroir classified as PDO or IGP, it is a VDF. PDOs and IGPs have advantages, such as reputation. Nevertheless, producing VDF can also be a winegrower’s choice and can therefore also be synonymous with quality wine production in complete freedom!
