Fleurie Clos de la Chapelle du Bois 2019 Chateau de la Chaize
FLEURIE La Chapelle des Bois 2019 [EXPLOITANT HAUTE-VALEUR ENVIRONNEMENTALE] 10% DE-STALKED
Following the death of our dear friend, Fernand Verpoix, in 2018, his family decided to sell their Chapelle des Bois vineyards to the new owners of one of Beaujolais most outstanding properties, Château de la Chaize. Christophe Gruy and his nephew, Boris (who is the head wine-maker) have decided to keep all their Fleurie parcels separate, with la Chapelle des Bois (3.2ha. of 90 year-old vines) as the star in the firmament.
2019 is their first release of this outstanding cuvée which was classically vinified, using indigenous yeasts, with an 8-day semi-maceration carbonique and 10 months élevage in large oak foudres.
The 2019 is a real success, showing no signs of over-extraction with complex aromas of plums, raspberries and pomegranate combined with hints of rose petals and spice. A silky, soft Fleurie with real precision and underlying concentration, giving it great length. [Drink from now until 2025]
