Notes from Frank Besson:

"Franck Besson is an ex-history and biology professor who took over his father-in-law’s estate located in town of Julié in Beaujolais-Villages at the foothill of Cru Juliénas. Revolted by the poor image that was being associated with Beaujolais Villages wines, Franck Besson decided to innovate and produce Rosé and Blanc de Noir sparkling wines to prove the potential of Gamay grapes on the granitic slopes of Beaujolais. 100% organic and hand harvested his wines are nothing but a success; they will change your opinion of Gamay forever. Employing Méthode Tradtionnelle, as they do in champagne, his sparkling wines are aged 12 months on wooden racks imparting brilliant finesse and flavor."
