Site: the northern part of the appellation, known as the "middle mountain". This is the Cru of Beaujolais with the highest elevation.
History & Tradition: because of its magnificent views over the hills of Beaujolais and the Valley of the Saône below, Chiroubles has always been a favourite place for hikers to stop and admire the magnificent panorama.
Soil: coarse granite and porphiry.
by Véronique Boss-Drouhin
Chiroubles is not a "fussy" wine! On the nose, characteristic aromas of peony and cherry. In the mouth, it is well structured and fleshy. Tannins are present, but not harsh. The roundness of the grape varietal is very much in evidence.
2020 is a nice vintage which provided wines of nice intense colours. The nose and the palate are characterized by black fruits such as blackberry, cherry, mingling with liquorice and spices. The wines are rich and dense, which can offer a good ageing potential to some appellations.Vintage's comment
