About Damien Coquelet
Damien Coquelet bottled his first vintage in 2007, at just 20 years old! The stepson of Georges Descombes, Damien has worked alongside him since early childhood. Damien produces his wines at his stepfather’s winery in the little town of Vermont, working side by side with both Georges and stepbrother Kevin. More than a decade on, the wines are as exciting as ever, demonstrating stunning purity, energy, and verve. Learning everything from Descombes in the vines and shared cellar has instilled the same values in Damien’s work ethic: organic viticulture, hand harvesting, native yeasts, zero intervention in the cellar, and little if any sulfur at bottling.
Damien currently works on nine hectares, 2.5 of which he owns. The breakdown is as follows:
-One hectare of Beaujolais
-Two hectares of Beaujolais-Villages
-Two hectares of Chiroubles
-Four hectares of Morgon Côte-du-Py
The Beaujolais-Villages, Morgon, and Chiroubles are usually bottled the January following the vintage, while an old-vine Morgon and Chiroubles are
barrel-aged and released 18 months after harvest.
