Start with organically grown Gamay clusters from old vineyards, ferment with no additives of any kind, and bottle the finished wine with little, and often zero sulfites. This is as pure, healthful, and effortlessly delicious a wine.
Coquelet’s Chiroubles is pungently brown-spiced and brimming with fresh, tart-edged red raspberry, suggestions of horehound and herbal essences adding a cooling satisfaction. The pure-fruited, sappy, bittersweet, pungent persistence benefits – as was the case with the corresponding Beaujolais-Villages – from a bit of invigorating tannic grit. Look for at least 2-3 years of renewable energy and delicious interest.
