The regional appellation "Beaujolais" was recognized in 1937 and is the most extensive of the region. It produces fresh and fruity wines, perfect for the first days of summer. Trénel's Beaujolais Cuvée Rochebonne is produced on the east of the "Pierres Dorées" area, on three parcels east oriented and facing the Mont Blanc. They’re located in the village of Lucenay and are particularly ancient: the older one has been planted in 1922. The soil is very clayey and gives roundness and structure to the wine.
