Tasting Notes

Max’s Chiroubles is above 400m, decomposed granite. This is the most delicate and aerial style of all. The tannins are soft and feathery, yet the aromas are a concentration of fresh black cherry, fresh hazelnut, cacao, liquorice and cassis.

More Info

From just over 3ha of old vines around the crus of Morgon, Chiroubles, Regnié and Cote de Brouilly, Breton’s Beaujolais are possessed of a fruity vibrancy, ethereality and minerality which makes the mind boggle, showing what can be done when low-intervention, low- or no-sulphur winemaking is allied to obsessively careful vineyard management and a deep understanding of Jules Chauvet's methods for working with gamay. In Beaujolais terms, Breton remains a bona fide don.

FROM THE PRESS

“The 2018 Chiroubles is a particular success, bursting with aromas of cherries, strawberries, dried flowers and licorice. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, melting and succulent, with an ample core of mouthwatering fruit and only the most ephemeral of structuring tannins, making for unimpeded drinkability—indeed, in a dark glass, this might be mistaken for a white wine.”
William Kelley - The Wine Advocate
