01/02/2015 – Louis Tete, Chiroubles 2013

Louis Tete, Chiroubles 2013, France
Beaujolais is pretty much misunderstood as a wine: memories of the ‘Beaujolais Nouveau’ craze cloud the picture for many wine drinkers, but top wines like this from the leading sub-region of Chiroubles is much more savoury, much more serious than most Nouveau, with abundant cherry and strawberry fruit, the typical sappy olive and herb note of the Gamay grape, and lovely acidity and balance. £10.99, Marks & Spencer.
