100% Gamay from 55-year-old organic vines planted on white granitic soils. Single-plot selection on the Les Journets climate, a plateau facing South-East. Manual harvest. Vinification: in whole bunches, carbonic maceration for 23 days, fermentation with indigenous yeasts. Gentle pressing in a vertical wooden press, aging for 10 months, half in vats and half in old casks. Bottled at the estate without fining or filtration, just a micro-dose of sulfur at bottling.
Raphaël Saint-Cyr is at the head of Domaine Saint-Cyr, located in Anse in Beaujolais. The history of the family estate dates back to 1949, when Pierre Saint-Cyr, Raphaël's great-grandfather, settled on this small farm. How far they’ve come over the generations! The estate has now 23 hectares of vines in the Beaujolais, Chénas, Morgon and Moulin-à-Vent appellations. Respectful cultural...All wines
