The domaine is owned by Gérard Gelin and his son Gilles. The estate is located in the Northern Beaujolais, around the crus of Moulin-à-Vent, Fleurie and Morgon. Gelin's 15 hectares of vineyard has developed an extraordinary following, and justifiably so. The vineyards are bordered on either side by Morgon to the west and Fleurie to the east. The vines average forty years in age and the quality of the fruit grown on this hillside site is extraordinary. There are even some vines that have reached an age of over a century. The wines made here are never artificially adjusted and are richer and denser that many Cru Beaujolais. As keeping with the finest tradition, all fruit is hand-harvested and whole-cluster vinified. Tasting of only the pure fruit flavors of unadulterated Beaujolais, they evolve beautifully with bottle age.
Gelin produces a unique and delicious sparkling Gamay “MADE BY G”, produced according to the ancestral method (1st part of the fermentation in the tank, 2nd part in the bottle). There is no addition of sugar, and qualifies as a Pétillant Naturel, or natural sparkler.
