About Aurelien Burgaud

From the Winemaker (translated from French…sorry:)

It’s a new life for me that begins in 2017 when I turn to viticulture. A homecoming in my native Beaujolais. I learn the trade from a winegrower on a large estate. I discover the rigor, humility, and wonder necessary for the elaboration of the wine. Many observations, reflections, and encounters quickly give me the desire to question “knowledge” in order to continue my learning and to “make” the wine that I love. The need to express my singular sensitivity then decided to embark on the adventure in the spring of 2020.

Have fun… and share it! The winemaker is a solitary character and at the same time open to encounters. It suits me. First of all, living through the seasons by following the cycles of the vine (from the solitude of pruning in winter, to the euphoria of the harvest in autumn!)… Then, working with the living, and not against the living. Learn, adapt and understand that most work is support work. I consider myself part of a whole that respects me, and that I respect every day in return. It’s not always easy, but it gives meaning to life. And finally, there is help from friends. And mainly that of my dear cousin Sylvain, without whom the epic would not have seen the light of day. In short, live your dream and share it with others!

The resulting wine is the fruit of artisanal work in the vineyard, made of manual plowing, controlled grassing, work with a pickaxe, reasoned treatments against vine diseases, biodynamic preparations, and harvesting with friends. I really like to observe, experiment, and embellish (vegetation covers, living soil, flower seedlings, etc.).

Most of my work is therefore done in the vineyard. The quality of the grape will make that of the wine. I vinify as close to the natural as possible, depending on the conditions of the year. Thus, the fruit of the 2020 vintage gives a jovial and elegant Beaujolais as it should be!

My budding 2ha estate consists of a superb plot producing “Grignette” in Quincié-en-Beaujolais, and two old vines on the slopes of the Régnié cru announcing a new cuvée in 2021.

I attach great importance to respecting the environment and the people who work. I chose to be a winegrower to be free and happy. Reproducing the gestures of my ancestors gives meaning to my practice. Believing in poetry more than in technique provides emotion. All that remains is to share this intoxication with you and the adventure is all the more beautiful!
