More expectational Cru Beaujolais from Daniel Bouland.

Perched between Morgon and Fleurie at around 400 metres above sea level, the vineyards of Chiroubles are the highest in Beaujolais. The vines sit on the upper slopes and in general, produce a Beaujolais that can be, to quote Gerald Asher, all “…lacy texture and sleek charm.” Bouland’s Chiroubles has a bit more stuffing than that. It comes from a 0.65-hectare parcel of 35- to 45-year-old vines on the steep, ridged incline of Chatenay, which has the typical granite and sandstone soils of the Cru. Protected by a nearby forest, it’s a warm, north-facing site.

"There’s a hint of gentle reduction to open before the nose reveals freshly picked black cherries, fragrant blueberries, and softer notes of rose petals and crushed rock then hints of cumin and fennel seed. Light on its feet with crunchy, bright cherry fruit, it’s a delicious, engaging release with seamless flow and long, chalky finish." - Supplier notes
