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 "Mosaïque"
Philippe Viet’s Mosaïque cuvée comes from select 50 year old vines in Régnié’s Haute-Ronze terroir – Régnié’s beloved terroir sitting just above 300 meters in elevation with soils loaded with granitic sand and gravel, as well as various deposits of clay. Viet follows the same methodology in processing for the Mosaïque as he does for his standard Haute-Ronze bottling up until elevage – whole bunch fermentation in concrete with no added sulfurs, 17 day maceration with extremely gentle pressing afterwards – however, the select vines are then aged in a roughly 2:1 mix of sandstone amphora and stainless steel tank. The results show just deep the wines of Régnié can go, here the giving fruits of Régnié turn black, tinged with licorice, ripe acids and surprising length.
