Domaine des Beaumont is a family-owned winery located in the village of Pierreclos in the Mâcon wine region of Burgundy, France. The estate was founded in 1981 by Bernard Vallet and is now run by his son, Fabien Vallet.
The winery has around 18 hectares (44 acres) of vineyards, planted primarily with Chardonnay grapes. The vineyards are located in several different appellations, including Pouilly-Fuissé, Saint-Véran, and Mâcon-Villages. The winery practices sustainable farming methods, including the use of cover crops, minimal use of pesticides, and hand harvesting.
The winemaking at Domaine des Beaumont is based on traditional techniques, with a focus on expressing the unique terroir of each of its vineyards. The grapes are carefully sorted before being gently pressed, and the juice is then fermented in stainless steel tanks or oak barrels, where it undergoes malolactic fermentation and aging. The winery uses a combination of new and used barrels to achieve the desired balance of oak flavor and fruit expression in the finished wines.
The wines of Domaine des Beaumont are known for their elegance, minerality, and balance, with a focus on expressing the unique character of each vintage and vineyard. The winery's wines have been recognized with numerous awards and high ratings from wine critics and publications around the world.
