Christophe Pacalet Chiroubles 2018


Vinification: Grapes sourced from lieu-dits ‘Les Genets’ and ‘Les Roches’ in Chénas, on sandy decomposed granite soils at about 300 meters altitude. Hand-harvest, strict selection in the vineyard and transport in small crates. Whole-cluster cold-carbonic maceration, fermentation on indigenous yeasts without SO2. Pressurage with old wooden press. Elevage on fine lees in old oak vats without SO2, minimal sulfitage at bottling.

Character: Similar to Fleuriet, the small cru of Chiroubles presents the feminine side of the Beaujolais. Violets and delicate strawberries on the nose, firm acidity and peppery minerality on the finish.
