Chiroubles ("shee-roo-bl") may not trip off the tongue quite as easily as Saint Amour or Morgon, but it’s home to silky, strawberry scented wines from the highest vineyards of all the Beaujolais Cru villages. This 2020 has real charm and ripeness.

Beyond the Label
Silky and ripe with lovely red fruits and mineral complexity
With 10 Beaujolais Crus to choose from, why select Chiroubles? Well, at 400 metres altitude, the beautiful Chiroubles is the highest of the esteemed Crus. This gives the wines particularly intense aromas (recalling, some say, the scent of the peony), enticingly fresh red berry flavours, with a touch of violet and lily. This delightful, fruit filled red is a classic example. It comes from the Vignerons de Bel Air, whose fathers and grandfathers first grouped together in 1929 to better withstand the worldwide economic downturn. Endlessly elegant, light and silky, this is a charmer for cold meats, picnics and chicken. And spot on in summer, when we recommend chilling it for 20 minutes or so in the fridge. Great value for such a fine classic.
"Really soft fruity Gamay. A classy example of a Cru Beaujolais and very nice glass of wine"
