(2014) The most elevated Cru of Beaujolais is Chiroubles. This comes from a 60-year-old vineyard at 400 metres elevation and is made in stainless steel. The colour is a really saturated crimson, with tight and mineral and green-flecked aromas of racy and sappy red berries. This is peppery, spicy and intriguing. In the mouth lovely energy and tension, with that gravel and mineral edge nudging the fruit into second place, and a long, spice-infused finish.
