Domaine de la Roche

In the starting-blocks

Collonge is a well-known name in Lantignié, and Mathieu represents the 5th generation of winegrowers in the village. The eleven-hectare family estate is run by his father Christophe. After completing a technical diploma in viticulture and winemaking and three years travelling, Mathieu returned home to set up his own winery with the 2020 vintage, on 3.68 hectares of family vines.

The estate has some very fine granite terroirs on the east side of Lantignié. “My aim is to add value to my bottled production and develop parcel wines,” explains Mathieu explains. In the vineyards, the young winemaker is committed to organic farming from the outset, with a broad vision: “I’m going to try to look beyond the vines and think about the ecosystem, by replanting trees and hedges…”.

In the winery, Mathieu wants to experiment, but already intends to limit inputs as much as possible, particularly sulphur, using traditional Beaujolais semi-carbonic maceration in whole bunches. For his first vintage, he aged his wines in vats, with the exception of a cuvée of Beaujolais-Lantignié in oak barrels. His first bottles have been available since spring 2021.
