Rein de La Ville is the pride of J.M. Aujoux. Shortly after harvest, winemaker Jean-Marc Darbon, journeys throughout Beaujolais and the Mâcconais to taste fresh lots of Pinot Noir which have been produced by longtime partners and friends. Each year, he selects the best lots of young and old vine Pinot Noir to create Reine de La Ville. Blending multiple lots from the two diverse regions brings the best of both to this wine – supple elegance from the Mâcconais, and fresh, joyful fruit from Beaujolais.
Located halfway between the Roche de Solutré (the birthplace of Pouilly-Fuissé) and Mont Brouilly, in the heart of the village of Fleurie, JM Aujoux has been a family-owned wine merchant, grower, and harvester since 1938.
