The beginnings of the estate date back to the early 1900s, Mr. Besson, Dominique Morel’s great-grandfather, moved to the town of Émeringes.
A man of his time, Besson was the inventor of the first filter press, for which he won a bronze medal at the Concours Lépine in 1910, he set up a distillery and a cooperage near the small 2-hectare (5-acre) vineyard.
Domaine de Gry-Sablon’s vineyards are spread across 8 villages in the Beaujolais winemaking area.
The majority of our vineyards are on hillsides, some even on very steep slopes. Vineyards planted in water drainage channels are maintained and meticulously tended every year to prevent erosion.
In these vineyards, all farm work is done by hand.
Tillage or cover crops are used in vineyards where mechanization is possible. The vineyard is managed using sustainable pest control methods and everything is done to stimulate the natural defenses of the vines.
Particular attention is paid to controlling yields, either by short pruning, disbudding or green harvesting.
Across the estate, all harvesting is done by hand, and all the grapes take a turn on the sorting table before arriving at the winery.
Their motto is: "Make superb grapes into wine, while respecting the singularity of the terroirs". Using our modern stainless steel vats with precise temperature control, they can process grapes that have been completely or partially destemmed without adding any sulfites.
Domaine de Gry Sablon Fleurie Vielles Vignes is Beaujolais at its best, a deeply pleasurable wine and Morel's wines encapsulate this style better than most.
