Profile of the winegrower

Since arriving at the estate in 2008, Raphaël Saint-Cyr, representing the fourth generation of winemakers in his family, has continuously worked to develop and grow his parent's estate: conversion to organic agriculture, single vineyard cuvées aged on fine lees for extended time (6 to 18 months), wild yeasts, finely-tuned extraction - a far cry from the Beaujolais primeurs. As part of the new, dynamic and ambitious generation of winemakers in the region, Raphaël strives above all else to make his Beaujolais wines the most authentic representation of their famous pierres dorées (golden stones) terroir. His cuvées are elegant and superbly refined, the fruit structure is balanced and the body is soft and lush. The biodynamic approach is on mind. Raphaël is meticulous about his vines, and his wife Karine is eager to support him in this transition. A great winemaker in the making, one to discover without hesitation.

A nice family history
