About Domaine du Coulet
The history and story of Domaine du Coulet began in 1998 when Matthieu Barret, a talented and young winemaker, took over the winery from his grandfather. Matthieu’s grandfather has established and set up the domaine sometime after the Second World War. He had utilised it for several years to plant grapevines and grow grapes. After that, he sold the fruits to renowned winemakers such as Delas or Chapoutier.
The vineyards owned by Domaine du Coulet spread across 20 hectares of land and remain located in the appellation of Cornas in France. The hillside area with highly degraded granite soil, locally named “gore,” allows the planted vines to grow and develop healthily. Since taking over the winery from his grandfather, Matthieu has aimed to produce wines using the grapes harvested on this land. He has strived to develop drinks that can express the underlying characters and expressions of the terroir.
