Originating from the Hautes-Alpes, Cyrille had various careers before finding winemaking as a grape harvester, which is how he landed in Beaujolais. A warm character with a cheeky smile, his wines all show a real softness with a serious drinkability. Vinification is mostly full carbonic maceration with little, if any, use of oak and sulphur. Initially working under Jean-Claude Lapalu, he produced his first vintage in 2012. He has 5 hectares of old and young Gamay on the edge of Brouilly, vines planted on a mix of pink granite, sand, clay and silex.
