Jonathan Buisson is a third-generation artisan producer in southern Beaujolais, farming ten hectares of estate gamay vines with organic and regenerative agricultural methods, incorporating agroecology. Nestled in an idyllic setting at the foot of the majestic Mont Brouilly, Domaine les Roches Bleues enjoys exceptional growing conditions, with the famous pierre bleue (diorite), a hard, blue-hued igneous rock typical of Côte de Brouilly,
giving delicious wines with incredible energy, structure, and freshness. La Baraquée is a full-bodied, ageable red from old vines in Brouilly, planted on sandy pink granite. Dark and savory, the cuvée is reminiscent of the dark intensity of wines that come from both Morgon and Côte de Brouilly, while retaining the soft, approachable profile of Brouilly.
