Domaine du Point du Jour
Jocelyne Dépardon and her brother Erick Copéret made a superb range of Beaujolais wines at Domaine du Point du Jour.
Perched on top of a hillside to the east of the village of Fleurie the domaine commands superb views over the surrounding countryside. The Point du Jour estate had been in the family for five generations and Jocelyne entered the business in 1988 to be joined later by brother-in-law Erick.
The estate had 7 hectares of vines and the majority of the production was Fleurie from which the estate made 3 different wines from 5.5 hectares. There was also a Brouilly from 1.5hectares, a Morgon from a tiny 0.5 hectare parcel of vines at the foot of the Côte du Py, with the last addition to the range of a Chiroubles from a 1 hectare plot acquired in 2000.
The wines are very authentic examples of each appellation.
Unfortunately Jocelyne and Erick are no longer making their own wines which is very regretable.
