Producer Profile

Gautier Marion is the fifth generation of the family to manage Domaine de la Couvette, tucked into the gently undulating countryside of Southern Beaujolais.

If you could picture what a quintessentially small French producer should look like then Gautier's property would come very close. He takes great pride in making wines in the traditional carbonic macerated style using his trusty, old concrete vats, which he uses to age the wines as well. Respecting not only the winemaking traditions, but also their 11 hectares of land and the vines that are up to 50 years old, they demonstrate their commitment by making a fully organic Beaujolais - which is full of ripe red fruit, spicy, earthy notes and a lovely smooth minerality.


A family domaine, passed from Father to Son since its creation in 1870, they cultivate 13 hectares with incredible passion from the vines that are located mainly near the village of Bully in the south of Beaujolais where the organically certified soils are rich in clay and limestone. The harvest is carried out by hand.


The carbonic maceration takes around four days. The grapes are slowly pressed and a cold and traditional vinification is carried out with only the native yeasts. Fermented and aged in cement tanks, before a light and gentle filtration.

Tasting Note

Beaujolais Nouveau is traditionally released on the third Thursday of October, so in 2023 Beaujolais Nouveau Day will be celebrated on Thursday 16 October! This organic Beaujolais Nouveau is hand crafted with a passion by the Family and team of Domaine de la Couvette. This is a bright, crunchy red wine that can be lightly chilled.

Food Matching

Pairs nicely with food that won't overpower it, so choose simple dishes of white meat, fish and some cheeses.
