2018 Domaine Chapel Fleurie Charbonnières
Notes from the importer, Sebastian Crowther MS:
This is the first vintage that David and Michelle made from the single lieu-dit, Charbonnières in Fleurie. A striking vineyard that forms a natural amphitheater. Meticulous work in the vineyard is required to farm these high density, free-standing, gobelet vines. The result are nothing short of breathtaking. Fine fragrant red fruits, cherry, strawberry, wild raspberry and red current form an alluring nose. These mineral shining underneath, smoke and rock. The palate is a web of complexity. Super fine tannins and a flavour that expands. Domaine Chapel is a very exciting addition to the Beaujolais scene.
