Appelation

Beaujolais

Variety

Chardonnay

The Domaine Saint-Cyr is proudly located in Anse, in the southern part of the Beaujolais known as Les Pierres Dorées, the golden stones, after the golden-hued limestone which is emblematic of the region. La Galoche is the name of a small stream that runs by the winery. This area is best known for Gamay, but given the limestone terroir, it's no surprise that they also produce some excellent Chardonnay. It's possible to label Chardonnay from this region as Bourgogne Blanc, but Raphael is firmly committed to the Beaujolais Blanc appellation.
