About Marcel Joubert 

Marcel Joubert is a fourth-generation winemaker, currently the most senior natural winemaker in Brouilly. The 10-hectare vineyard spreads across AOC Beaujolais, Beaujolais Villages, Brouilly, Fleurie, Chiroubles & Morgon. His grandfather, Petrus, founded the appellation of Brouilly. Marcel Joubert took over with the mind for preservation in tending to older vines from 30 to 100 years old— and with the desire to farm in a way close to nature. He’s been producing natural wines in several appellations since meeting Marcel Lapierre at a motorcycle rally in the late 1980s.

Beloved by his peers, Joubert’s larger-than-life personality is much like his style of winemaking. His wine still remains unknown to many, as he belongs to a previous generation of Beaujolais winemakers for whom discretion bordering on anonymity was part of the game. Carine Joubert has taken over the operation from her father, Marcel. Carine is now the fifth generation to run the estate.

Organic practices (Certified Organic), following biodynamic principles. Therefore, no chemical fertilizers are used, only seaweed. Instead of employing defoliants, short, sturdy grass (Paturin) grows on the sandy soil between vine rows. By this method there is competition with the vines, allowing them to develop a deeper root system and a natural reduction of the yield. Plowing is also a part of the program. This serves to destroy weeds, aerate the soil and promote microbial biodiversity.
