Initial lifted flowers of the fields, lower alcohol (13%), no spritz this time and red fruits mixed with a hint of beetroot and fine but noticed tannin - moorish. Put it on the table with a casserole, don't rush and you will find even more! - Michael L


Tucked away up in the hills between Morgon and Fleurie, Chiroubles has often been described as “the most Beaujolais of the ten crus of Beaujolais.” In other words, everything that makes wines from this region so lovable—low alcohol, explosive flowery aromas, high-toned juicy fruit—are intensified in Chiroubles. The nose here is bright and crystal clear, very floral and pretty with typically entrancing aromas of red cherries and hints of sweet kirsch. In the mouth the taste is energetic, fresh and focused, with juicy fruit, fresh acidity and a fluid mineral finish. It has beautiful tension, balance and length. 2016 is a vintage I love in the Beaujolais, those that handled the frost and hail have produced stunning quality, like Noune has here. - Importer Note
