Chateau de Corcelles - Fleurie 2020
It was in the 15th century that Antoine de Laye began the reconstruction of the Château de Corcelles on the foundations of an old stronghold built in the Carolingian period. The Douby River, which flows at the foot of the Château, marked the boundary between the dioceses of Autun and Lyon, the counties of Burgundy and Beaujolais. It is today, within a few kilometers, the border between the departments of Saône et Loire and Rhône. From 1984, the Richard family took over the prestigious domain.
