Country: France

Region: Bugey (the link between Jura and Savoie)

Grape: Chardonnay

Viticulture: Natural Wine / Organic Farming 

Winemaking: Manual harvested grapes are pressed as whole bunches. Fermented in half stainless steel and half wood for 9 months. Matured in old oak barrels. Malolactic fermentation, unfined, unfiltered and no added sulphur. 

Citrus notes (grapefruit) then more pastry notes arrive (buttery side of wood aging) which brings a thicker texture which balances well with the acidity of this juice.


At “La Cuverie”, Aurelien Beyeklian stands for a natural, humble, and friendly approach to wine with determination & passion. After a first professional career around the world with the Red Cross, he decided, at 40, to start all over again! A few essential encounters (apprenticeship with the Bret brothers in Vinzelles), the need of a different life and the conviction that Bugey is home of wonderful wines: this is what pushed him to become winemaker. 

No use of any chemicals, all work is carried out manually. Horses are used for ploughing and sheep are used between the vines. Certified organic, but converting to Biodynamics, all in a Permaculture environment.
