Thibaut Ducroux is a new young winemaker based in Morgon. He spent his formative years learning about wine making in work experience with some of the other natural growers in the region like Jean Claude Lapalu and Michel Guignier. Now he has his own vines and produced his first vintage in 2019.
Thibaut is a committed natural grower. He has now converted his 5 hectares in Beaujolais Villages, Morgon and Fleurie to organic viticulture. The wines from 2022 will be certified. He uses carbonic maceration and natural yeasts for fermentation. There is no finings, filtration and very low levels of sulphites, generally about 30-35 mg/litre.
His wines are very classic Beaujolais from granitic soils. Crunchy and fresh in youth, they will undoubtedly soften and become very silky after a few years in bottle. Thibaut Ducroux is sure to build himself a fantastic reputation in Beaujolais as after only 3 years as a grower and wine maker, he is already achieving delicious results.
