Henry Fessy


Located in the heart of Brouilly appellation since 1888, Henry Fessy is a family company specialized in the production of the Beaujolais Crus. The heart of Henry Fessy's domaine is on the Plâteau de Bel-Air, a named vineyard in the commune of Saint Jean d'Ardières at the centre of the Brouilly appellation. It is on the foothills of Mont Brouilly overlooking the Sâone plains; set on a hill and very sunny. Granite schist soils overlay shale bedrock and a special micro-climate produce fruity silky wines with fine tannins and flavours of red fruits and spice. Based in Brouilly, the Fessy family was, over time, able to extend the reach of their domaine, covering land in other areas. Today, it’s one of the largest landholders in Beaujolais, making wine in nine of the 10 crus. In 2008, Henry Fessy was chemicals is replaced by measured intervention. The use of natural biological methods is favoured whenever possible depending on the climatic conditions of the vintage and the phytosanitary state.
