Raphael Saint Cyr is the fourth generation vigneron at Domaine Saint Cyr in Anse, on the southern edge of Beaujolais. Formerly Domaine de Bellevue, it was founded by Raphael’s great-grandfather.

Raphael and his wife took over in 2008 and immediately focused on the vines in the northern Crus of Morgon, Regnié, Chénas, and Moulin-à-Vent. They converted the entire 23 hectare domaine to certified organic, now it is the largest organic domaine in Beaujolais. A huge undertaking and achievement.

Each cuvée is split into single vineyard parcels, with the terroir the name for each wine. All cuvées are fermented with natural yeasts 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.
