Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

Chiroubles is an elegant, tender wine that is really enjoyable young to make the most of its charming aromas and flavours. But you can also wait for 2 to 3 years to make the most of its maturity, which often makes it more complex.

Serve with: Poultry, Bresse capon, charcuterie, terrine etc.

Critical Acclaim

"Vivid ruby. Youthfully primary aromas of red and dark berries are complicated by notes of candied licorice, black tea and rose oil. Spicy, incisive raspberry and cherry flavors give way to darker fruits in the middle palate and show very good clarity. Turns spicier on the finish, leaving behind a floral pastille note. This is delicious now but is balanced to age."

Those are usually the Cru Beaujolais and are...

After being universally rejected by the rest of Burgundy in the 14th century, Gamay found its niche a bit further south, in Beaujolais. Beyond that part of France, Gamay can also be...
