Description
Chiroubles is one of the lesser known Beaujolais Crus, but producers in this tiny appellation frequently over-perform producing fruity, highly perfumed wines expressing all that's great about Beaujolais. One such producer is Julien Chantreau, whose small domaine make wines with irresistible and immediate charm. He's only got four hectares in Chiroubles, so we were thrilled that he could spare some wine for us.
Tasting Notes
A refreshing, light and joyful expression of Gamay, grown on some of the steepest granite slopes in Beaujolais. It has an abundance of pretty peony perfume on the nose and the palate is packed with soft, silky raspberry fruit and low tannins, with a mineral streak on the finish.

An excellent partner to chicken pie, summer salads or just a cold meat and cheese platter. A perfect lunch-time red.
