Sylvère Trichard

Winemaker Feature

Beaujolais, France

In 2012 Sylvère Trichard took over the vineyard that grandparents established in 1955 near Blacé in Beaujolais. The vines on the vineyard are between 20 and 80 years old and planted on sandy clay soils over granite. The vineyard has been converted by his uncle to operate biodynamic since 2000, and Sylvère aims to continue this vision.
The wines are fermented with native yeasts, no additives and all reds undergo carbonic maceration.
The ageing process predominantly occurs in concrete vats, except for the cherished plot of his grandmother—the oldest vines. These vines are selected for a cuvée dedicated to her and undergo ageing in traditional old barrels.
