History

A hillside of about twenty hectares in Cercié, wonderfully south-facing. Pisse-Vieille is the only climate in the Brouilly appellation, but it is also a locality whose name comes from a rather famous story in Beaujolais.

The heroine of this legend is a good local woman, a very pious winegrower who regularly went to confession at the parish priest’s house to tell him about her minor sins. But she had nothing very serious to tell. That is why, quite simply, one day, the priest freed her by telling her : “Go! And don’t sin anymore ! But the old woman was a bit hard of hearing. She heard, simply : “Go! And don’t pee anymore! It must be said that in Beaujolais patois, to sin is to piss. One can easily imagine what happened next.

The old woman was only relieved of her ordeal when her husband, worried, went to see the priest to ask him for details. And returned home, shouting, from the bottom of the hill, “Piss old, piss old, the priest said it ! Thus was baptized the place.
