Where and How?
This comes from two parcels of Gamay planted on the granite soils of the Lantignié soils; an area of the Beaujolais-Villages sector which is being considered for the 11th 'Cru' of Beaujolais.
All of the Chapel wines are made in the same style; carbonic maceration is carried out very gently (only wetting the cap when necessary), the wine is naturally fermented and aged in fibreglass. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, with minimal sulphites.
The Winemaker: Domaine Chapel
This is the kind of love story which really should be turned into a novel.
Michele, one of New York’s most respected sommeliers, was visiting one of her favourite regions—Beaujolais—to taste with growers. David, the son of 3 Michelin-starred chef Alain Chapel, had also become smitten with Beaujolais and was working with the iconic natural wine domaine, Lapierre, where Michele was due to taste. However, she was running late, and Matthieu Lapierre had an appointment elsewhere, so David offered to step in.
The rest is history; long story short Michele never really returned to the US, and the two settled in an old stone house in the Juliénas Cru, rented vineyards, bought a dog, had beautiful twins and a gorgeous little boy. Life goals, right!?
It's thanks to growers such as young couple, Michele & David, that the region is experiencing a rebirth, and the future is brighter than it’s ever been.
