Since 1865, the spirit of Mommessin has consisted of a Beaujolais soul and a Burgundian heart that define a style that is fruity, powerful and very close to its roots.

The Mommessin spirit stands out for the alliance of two winegrowing regions - Burgundy and the Beaujolais, two cultures that make our wines distinctive and appealing.

Food and wine pairing

An elegant companion to meals, such as a great steak, fine pork and obviously the “Coq au vin” of Juliénas.

Ageing potential

Ready to drink but might be kept until 3 to 5 years.


Juliénas, which according to etymology, takes its name from Julius Caesar, is located at the northern gateway to the Beaujolais Vineyard, at the crossroads of two kingdoms: the ending of Gamay and the emerging of Chardonnay.

The Juliénas terroir is made up to the west of lean and arid granite soils, infiltrated with veins of manganese and porphyries which, towards the east, give way to formations of the secondary era, ancient alluvium, deeper soils and more clayey.

Vinification and maturing

Harvest: manual.
Wine making: the harvest, on the arrival at the cuverie is handled in different ways, with grape-bunches with the lowest yields being de-stemmed. That allows for longer macerations with the extraction of gentle tannins, giving better complexity.
Ageing: in vats.
