"The highest of the 10 cru regions in Beaujolais, Chiroubles can be light - but not this exceptional 2015. Generously fruited but not over-extracted, this is refined and beautifully proportioned. Fresh and perfectly balanced, pure silk. GV." Decanter, June 2017

Chiroubles is the highest of the ten Cru villages, with sandy vineyards on the slopes at 280-450 metres, so the wines tend to lightness and grace. All the wine here goes into the traditional large old oak foudres, large barrels, in the Beaujolais fashion; and all are bottled with minimal filtration to preserve texture.

The first wine we have shipped from the amazing 2015 vintage, arguably the best in living memory in Beaujolais. Intense red fruited aromas lead to a lush palate of black cherries. This is so ripe, with an unusually rich texture for this cru, but the tannins are soft and the overall impression is fresh, round and balanced. Pure joy. Now-2021.
