Since taking over the family domaine, Raphael has slowly but surely steered the domaine towards a lighter, fresher style. 2018 was the first vintage of the "new" Moulin-a-Vent made in the classic cold carbonic method of the legendary cru Beaujolais. It's another notch for Saint Cyr, who is slowly but surely crafting wine equal to the legendary masters of the Beaujolais. The results were so successful that starting in 2019, Raphael has vinified all of his red wines using cold carbonic - the homegrown, Beaujolais method of natural winemaking.
