Product Description

The Wine: Cuvée de Printemps 2020

Séléné Cuvée de Printemps 2020 is a red natural wine made from 100% organic Gamay grapes from Beaujolais, France. No added sulfites at bottling for a very fresh Beaujolais – a bit more structured and concentrated than the Primeur, which we also carry.

The Producer: Séléné • Sylvere Trichard

Sylvere Trichard is a young vigneron who lives in the small hamlet of Blace, a village in Beaujolais. In 2012, after interning with Domaine Belluard and working at Domaine Lapalu, Sylvere took over his uncles 4ha of vines. Since 1998 the 4ha had been farmed organically (certified Ecocert) and biodynamically under the previous domaine called Domaine de Fully.

Sylvere returned to biodynamic farming in 2018. His wines go through semi-carbonic maceration and are aged mostly in concrete vats or large wooden casks. The wines are bottled without fining, filtration or SO2 when feasible.

The estate, with a surface of 6ha, is divided into two sections. In one part, the soil is composed of silt and loam and a gentle slope going towards a small stream. The second part of the estate is within the village's zone and is made of sand and granite. The vines' ages range from 20 to 80 years old.

The cuvee Gisous comes from a parcel of 80 years old vines, facing North/East. Gisous is a tribute to Sylvere's grandmother who lives next door. New this year, we are introducing his Primeur Beaujolais 2020, which has gained quite a following in France and Japan.

The Region: Beaujolais

The Beaujolais wine region is located south of Burgundy. It stretches for about 50km from the town of Mâcon and its characteristic rolling hills to the flatlands bordering the regional capital and world-renown culinary center Lyon on the north.

Beaujolais wine region is split in two by the Nizerand River. The north of the river is where we find the Crus and Beaujolais Villages, whereas south of the river is where Beaujolais and Beaujolais Nouveau are made.

Gamay is the dominant grape varietal of the region giving its best when grown on the granite and sandy clay soils north of the Nizerand River and made into Beaujolais Crus and Beaujolais Villages easy-drinking delicious wines.

There are ten Beaujolais Crus where the best Beaujolais are made: Brouilly, Chenas, Chiroubles, Cote de Brouilly, Fleurie, Julienas, Morgon, Moulin-a-Vent, Regnie, and Saint-Amour.

Shipping Policy


Stress-Free Shipping

At Primal Wine, we like to be transparent about everything we do. When it comes to buying products online, shipping is the most important aspect, and that’s why we take great care in shipping and handling your order using only 100% recycled packaging material. We don't ship to: KS, LA, MS, AL, WI, KY, NH, UT, SD, MI, AR.

Important Compliance Requirements

UPS and other carriers we might occasionally use can only deliver wine to customers who are 21 years or older. Someone must be at the address to receive the package, carriers don't just drop a package and leave. They must ensure the person receiving the wine is 21 or older.

Re-shipping a Package

If a package gets returned to us after three failed delivery attempts, we can only re-ship the wine upon payment of a re-shipping fee to be determined based on shipping address and number of bottles. Shipping wine is extremely expensive, we are sorry about this, but we have no other choice. Please make sure there's always someone at the address you enter as your shipping address.

Re-routing a Package

If you'd like to re-route a package after it's been shipped, we can do so upon payment of a $20 re-routing fee. We cannot re-route a package across state borders.

Canceling an Order

If you'd like to cancel an order after it's been shipped, we can do so upon payment of a small cancelling fee – the amount depends on how big the order is. Carriers charge us a lot of money to recall a package en-route.

Important COVID Update

UPS and FedEx declared that in order to protect their workers and customers, they no longer require a signature on delivery. This does not mean they will drop a wine box at your door. UPS delivery workers will make sure the person receiving the wine is 21 years or older, and will ask for his/her name - only then do they deliver the package.
