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 2019 Régnié Haute-Ronze

Haute-Ronze is a very special site in the Cru of Régnié, sitting just above 300 meters in elevation with soils loaded with granitic sand and gravel, as well as various deposits of clay. Here Philippe organically farms vines that are 50 years old on average. The wines from here express the epitome of Régnié, with giving fruit and luscious texture and incredible depth in nuance. At Viet the wine is made by whole bunch fermentation and no added sulfurs, 16 day maceration with extremely gentle pressing afterwards. Elevage is continued for 8-10 months in egg shaped tank before bottling.
