Raphael Saint Cyr is the fourth generation Vigneron at the newly named Domaine Saint Cyr. Formerly Domaine de Bellevue, started by Raphael’s great-grandfather, they are based in Anse in the southern edge of Beaujolais.

Raphael took over in 2008 and immediately took over vines in the Northern Crus of Morgon, Regnié, Chénas, and Moulin-à-Vent.

As well as taking over the Northern Crus, Raphael also converted the entire 23 hectare Domaine to certified organic.  Each cuvée is split into single vineyard parcels, with the terroir the name for each wine.  All cuvées are fermented in concrete tanks and then aged in old barrels for 12-18 months.

Moulin-à-Vent La Bruyère is a 1.3 hectare site, 55 year old vines on granite and shale.  Élevage is split: 2/3 for 18 months in cement tank,1/2 in used barrels.
