2018 DOMAINE DE LA GROSSE PIERRE Chiroubles (Beaujolais, France)
Style - Vibrant
Grapes - Gamay
Tasting - Always a racy and tender cru Chiroubles but this one has some serious dark fruit tones to it while the tannins are meltingly soft. Begging to be chilled a bit and consumed with alacrity.
FYI: Beaujolais is likely the most dynamic wine region in France right now. Loads of young growers attracted by low land prices, natural wine fervour and old vines means a febrile territory for greatness.
