2017 Chiroubles

BLEND | 100% Gamay

VINEYARDS | Chiroubles is considered “the most Beaujolais of the Crus” with its thin sandy, degraded granite soils (known locally as gore) that produce very delicate wines. Passot’s plots are 50 year old vines on slopes oriented to the southeast at 300-400 meters (the highest altitude in Beaujolais).

WINEMAKING | Hand harvested grapes that undergo primary and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel and cement vats.

PRESS | 92 VIN

“Bright violet color. Vibrant, sharply focused red berry, cherry and floral pastille scents, along with suggestions of musky earth and licorice. In an elegant, seamless style, offering juicy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that turn sweeter as the wine opens up. The floral note comes back on a very long, lively finish that’s framed by silky tannins that fold smoothly into the sappy fruit.” - Josh Raynolds .
