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).
Hand harvested grapes that undergo primary and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel and cement vats.
Textbook Beaujolais - berry aromas with floral hints and some anise. The flavors are juicy, sappy red fruits such as cherries and raspberries with a precise, mineral-laden structure with silky tannin. Totally chillable and plays well with an array of dishes.
