Gamay is Beaujolais! Lovely medium to light red wine, with fresh acidity for summer drinking with great potential for ageing in good vintages.

Also planted in: the Loire; odd new plantings in New World, e.g. New Zealand

La Chapelle des Bois, Fleurie, Grand Pre, 2020

Fleurie has an association with “flowery” – but the best wines can have substance too. Splendid in the latest vintage: perfumed with crushed berries and roses; black cherry dominated; with fine fruit tannins. Now-2023

Cru (from the 10 Cru villages) Beaujolais remains undervalued. The levity and charm of juicy Gamay is out of fashion presumably because people still hold bad memories of thin Beaujolais Nouveau. But with warmer summers the old vines of the region produce deliciously ripe juice. Fleurie has an association with "flowery" - but the best wines can have backbone too.

La Chapelle des Bois, long owned by the Coudert family, has been bought by Frederic Montangeron, a go-ahead guy in Beaujolais. but the former owners' traditional label lives on with this wine.

Excellent wines sourced and chosen by the founder/wine expert, Simon Taylor. We were one of Stone Vine & Sun's very first clients and always buy from them. First-class knowledge and service.
