Domaine Philippe Viet

Beaujolais | Morgon

While Philippe Viet did not grow up in a world of winemaking or viticulture his craft is as keen as his mentors. After prying himself out of the city and turning away from his tech job trajectory he found his love of wine and the terroirs of Beaujolais landing him with a job learning under Eric Janin (Domaine Paul Janin et fils, Moulin-à-vent). Philippe’s greatest takeaway from his tenure under Janin was that “humility must be the cornerstone of my craft. Understanding and respecting your land is key to the crafting of great wines.”

Domaine Philippe Viet 2020 Fleurie Poncié

The grapes from this parcel of Fleurie Poncié were harvested manually on August 25, 2020. Whole cluster vinification in an ovoid vat after manual sorting of the grapes. 10 days of semi-carbonic maceration with daily pumping over and crushing at the end of maceration. Soft pressing then aging for 12 months: 50% stainless steel vats - 50% 500L barrels.
Bottled at the beginning of September 2021. A complex and subtle nose of black fruits, pepper, spices and floral notes.
