Michel Tête works the old-fashioned way. As a winemaker, he follows quasi-Burgundian techniques for his Beaujolais-Villages and Juliénas, with a semi-carbonic maceration where the cap of skins is kept submerged in the juice, and remontages break it several times a day. His wines are appreciated and receive numerous awards and articles in the press.Come to taste them at the domain, or visit one of the wine merchands or restaurants that appreciate our work.

Tête’s wines are fleshy and generous, have intense color, lively berry aromas, and notes of black pepper.
His top cuvée, called Cuvée Prestige, is made from a selection of his oldest vines, macerated in open vats with remontages and a half of it is barrel fermented and aged for 10 months.
The Beaujolais-Villages and Juliénas are bold and forward, and very pleasurable even when young.
