Domaine de la Grosse Pierre Chiroubles Beaujolais 2018

For Beaujolais cru purists, Pauline Passot’s Chiroubles comes from the highest altitude cru and it shows: real purity, a sensitive touch. As Jancis Robinson writes, this talented producer makes wines 'for those who appreciate subtlety rather than mass.” ”Fresh ripe fruit,” she continues, “is to the fore…finishes with a more savoury, slightly darker flavour, adding another dimension.” “Organic or in the process of conversion and all her wines are made using whole bunches and semi-carbonic maceration, with no added yeast, no added sulphur dioxide apart from a little at bottling, and extremely gentle extraction. Ageing potential, though there is really no need to wait. However, she makes only 3,000 bottles of this wine so it is harder to find. A very good value for money.”
