Right in the middle of the more traditional classics and the more rock'n'roll cuvees, there's a bottle that will broaden the horizons of your open-minded peers about natural wines, while pleasing both the avid discoverers and the most experienced drinkers. A bottle that brings everyone together.
A bright Beaujolais from the small village of Chiroubles that is wildly refreshing. The wine is made from organic fruit farmed by a husband and wife duo, and tastes like tart cherries and wildflowers.
David Chapel has been immersed in the world of winemaker since his childhood. Overnoy, Lapierre and many others, friends with David's late father Alain Chapel, a renowned Michelin-starred chef, have shared their table and their knowledge with him. It is therefore natural that he decides, after a few years of sommelier training, to start his own business in Morgon, at the Lapierre family. There he met Michele, an American sommelier on a visit; after a stint in New York, they decided to return to Beaujolais and settled in Regnie-Durette in 2017.
After a 2016 vintage vinified in Morgon, 2017 marked their big debut, picking up grapes and vines from Julienas, then from Chiroubles, Fleurie and Lantignie in 2018. A non-interventionist approach and winemaking that respects local traditions results in wines that are crisp, fresh but with all the depth of the great Beaujolais wine.
