Domaine de Selene
From the commune of Blacé in Beaujolais, Domaine De Selene is headed up by Sylvere
Trichard. Sylvere, who honed his understanding of gentle winemaking with Domaine Belluard in Savoie and Domaine Lapalu of Brouilly, took over the family’s four hectares from his uncle in 2012. There are now 6.5 hectares under vine, all farmed organically and biodynamically.
As is tradition in Beaujolais, most wines goes through semi-carbonic maceration before fermentation and elevage in a mix of concrete vat and large barrels. Wines are made with no filtration, no fining and tiny amounts of sulphur (if at all).
There estate can be roughly divided in two. The non-village wines are located on a loam-silt hill above a creek, while the village wines sit on more classic granite soils.
