Tasting Notes

This is full Beaujolais – nothing weedy about this wine – with hints of game – like some Burgundy.  It’s complex for Beaujolais, like Lapierre and Breton, with floaty fruit. Wonderful stuff.

More Info

I first drank the wine of David Chapel three years ago in a restaurant in Tournon. David was mentored by the late Marcel Lapierre, a giant of Beaujolais. Lapierre, along with our friend Guy Breton, whose wines we import, and also helps Chapel, have carried the torch for natural winemaking in Beaujolais, and preserved its beauty, by using only natural yeasts from the grapes to ferment their wine, and very low level of sulphur.  David’s wines, that he now makes with his partner Michele Smith, are wonderfully generous and expressive. They are living wines, whose soul has not be compromised.
