Chiroubles la Montagne — Gamay 2020

£39.00

A Wine That

ticks all the boxes of what you look for in lighter fine red wines. Think layers of fresh red fruit and that haunting 'minerality' we all hope to find in the best bottles, combined with a fine grained, silky tannin texture — like finely ground fresh herbs. With bucketloads of energy and moreish acidity, it's the kind of fine wine where you have to remind yourself to slow down and savour every sip — before you blink and the bottle is gone.

This bottle is a rare find that we would like to share with many of you. We are therefore limiting the purchase to ONE BOTTLE ONLY per customer please, thank you for your understanding!

Where and How?

This wine comes from 45-year old vines planted on granite, 450 metres above sea level. The yield for this wine is tiny at only 15hl/ha. The wine was vinified using semi-carbonic maceration in concrete tanks for 25 days, and the wine was aged in a combination of 225L and 600L oak barrels (70%) and concrete vessels (30%). No added sulfites.

The Winemaker

Jules Métras is following in his father's footsteps, who started making wine in Beaujolais in 1988. Before starting to make wine in Beaujolais himself, Jules explored different areas and worked with the best in the Ardèche and the Jura. His soif for knowledge also led him to work in the southern hemisphere (New Zealand, Chile & Argentina) and in 2010, Jules came back to his native Beaujolais to help his father Yvon tend the vines. Today, Jules farms three hectares that he bottles under his own name with his first vintage released in 2014.

"We are talking about making natural wines, with a lot of hygiene, and impressive facilities. But actually, it is also possible to make great wines using the bear minimum, a reminder that the most important is to emphasise the effort in having great raw material." — Jules Métras
