About this Wine

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.

Tasting notes

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.
