Winemaker's Notes:

Bright, red & shiny with an upfront nose of bright mixed berries and great gamay aromas. The taste is very characteristic of Gamay with many layers to please you. It is smooth, well balanced & structured with a long finish. Perfect with roast chicken or lighter meat dishes. A great example of a well made Beaujolais.
My Notes:

About Domaine Cheysson:

This estate in Beaujolais, was established in 1870 when turnips were more plentiful than grapes! Today, Jean- Pierre Large makes outstanding Cru Beaujolais that consistently wins medals of excellence. Clos les Farges, is a single vineyard with 45 year old vines that yields concentrated jammy wine. Quality is ensured at every step of the process, by the knowledgeable Jean Paul. When it comes to the vines and wines, the family motto is patience & love, which Emile Cheysson had declared the key to a successful and delicious Chiroubles!
