In 2007, at just 20 years old, Damien Coquelet bottled his first vintage of wine. Growing up in Beaujolais, Damien learned in the cellar of his step-father Georges Descombes and alongside his brother Kewin Descombes. Coquelet’s vineyards are scattered through Beaujolais. He has 2.5 hectares that the owns along with another 6.5 hectares that he farms and harvests. The vineyards are made up of granitic and decomposed schist soils. All of his wines are the product of organic viticulture, hand harvesting and native yeast fermentations. Minimal SO2 (if any) is used at bottling. While he holds vineyards in Beaujolais, Beaujolais-Village and Morgon Côte-du-Py, it is his Chiroubles that he is best known for.
