Domaine Joseph Chamonard is a small exploitation located in the heart of Beaujolais and managed by Geneviève and Jean-Claude Chanudet (known as "Le Chat": “The Cat”). The estate has been established in the appellations of Morgon and Fleurie since the 18th century, and the age of the vines is between 60 and 90 years old. The terroir is composed of pink granite, decomposed rocks and friable schists, exposed to the South. The Morgon plots (Les Chênes, Corcelette, Les Grands Cras and le Colombier) are located in the commune of Villié-Morgon. Domaine Chamonard also cultivates half a hectare of vines on the most beautiful hill of Fleurie, 400 meters above sea level.
The vines are cultivated organically, in accordance with respect for the environment: without chemicals, by manual harvest with light tillage of the soil. In the cellars, only indigenous yeasts are used during fermentation and human intervention is minimal, in the same vein as natural wines.
