Domaine Damien Coquelet

Coquelet Morgon Côte du Py Vieilles Vignes

Country: France
Region: Beaujolais
Grape: Gamay
Colour: Red
Bottle Size: 75cl
Alcohol: 12%
Vintage: 2015
Organic

Aged just 20 years old Damien Coquelet bottled his first vintage in 2007.  Not entirely surprising when you then hear he is the step-son of Beaujolais legend Georges Descombes.  With his first plot of Côte de Py being gifted to him by the Mayor of Morgon, Damien is truly respected in the region and one of the next-generation of vignerons redefining the region.

Taking advice from and being mentored by Descombes, Damien has followed the same path - organic viticulture, hand harvesting, native yeasts and zero intervention in the cellar with little to no sulphur added at bottling.

Damien farms 4 hectares of Côte de Py, arguably the most famous hillside in Beaujolais with granite and schist soil.
