He epitomised the older generation in Beaujolais, where an impish sense of humour and sheer hard work came together to produce amazing Fleuries from his Clos de la Chapelle vineyard. Utterly modest and always meticulous in his wine-making, Fernand also loved a good time. We last lunched together at the \"Au Bon Cru\" and it was our usual get-together: a pastis 51 and a bottle of Fleurie (always someone else's) and a 'déjeuner campagnard'. He was regularly disappointed that I turned down a marc (as a disgestif) but understood - as he was never pushy. We gossiped, talked about Beaujolais in the 1970's and most importantly, its future. Recently, talking to some other friends in the village of Fleurie, they marvelled how, at the age of 82, he was out on his tractor in the vines, always working away. Someone said they saw him going to get his baguette and paper in the village just before Christmas and he didn't look at his best.

Fleurie Clos De La Chapelle Du Bois 2015

Product Description
This is what Chris Piper wrote on our website, at the beginning of January 2018:

“Very, very sad news. Fernand Verpoix, one of the legends of Fleurie and Beaujolais, passed away last week at the age of 83. Fernand was one of the first independent Beaujolais growers to join the CPW 'team' in 1991 and was, without doubt, one of the most adored by us all. He epitomised the older generation in Beaujolais, where an impish sense of humour and sheer hard work came together to produce amazing Fleuries from his Clos de la Chapelle vineyard. Utterly modest and always meticulous in his wine-making, Fernand also loved a good time. We last lunched together at the "Au Bon Cru" and it was our usual get-together: a pastis 51 and a bottle of Fleurie (always someone else's) and a 'déjeuner campagnard'. He was regularly disappointed that I turned down a marc (as a disgestif) but understood - as he was never pushy. We gossiped, talked about Beaujolais in the 1970's and most importantly, its future. Recently, talking to some other friends in the village of Fleurie, they marvelled how, at the age of 82, he was out on his tractor in the vines, always working away. Someone said they saw him going to get his baguette and paper in the village just before Christmas and he didn't look at his best. I guess we all have to accept that time runs out but it's terribly sad when it does. Our sincere condolences to his wife, Andrée and his two children Christian and Nathalie. Santé!”

Until we know exactly what is going to happen to this wonderful domaine, we have been lucky enough to be offered some more of the outstanding 2015 vintage. Sourced from the lieu-dits of en Champagne, Grille-Midi and the 3.5 hectares of Clos de la Chapelle des Bois, this is a classic Fleurie with excellent silky fruit, penetrating concentration and the tell-tale iris and chocolate nose that Fernand Verpoix' wines often show.
