Vaux-en-Beaujolais, Beaujolais, France
Originating from the Hautes-Alpes, Cyrille has had various careers and through the love of wine has found his way to becoming a winemaker. He's worked previously a ski instructor, a fruit picker and has picked grapes which is how he landed in Beaujolais. He is an warm character always with a cheeky smile, and we're so excited to be working with him. He started winemaking working under Jean-Claude Lapalu, and in 2012 he produced his first vintage. He has 5 hectares of old and young Gamay vines planted on a mix of pink granite, sand, clay and silex soils and located on the edge of Brouilly. Juicy with buckets of orange, pithy grapefruit and mineral finish. A very light, dry tannin. Mix of old and young vines, 20 days' carbonic.
