Daniel's Chiroubles shows a much more serious side to Gamay and a far cry from the light juicy fruity wines often associated with the region. Nice fruit profile structured and bold this is powerful Gamay.
Notes on the producer
Based in the hamlet of Corcelette Daniel is a hardworking, humble, discreet and sometimes anxious vigneron. He prefers a solitary life and happily spends 12 hours a day working on his diverse and exceptional terroirs, taking care of old (60-100yo) bush vines traditionally planted at high density. All of this by hand on steep slopes where no tractor could go. All his grapes are hand-harvested and vinified with full clusters and natural yeasts in concrete vat with two pump overs per day. The wines are then aged in old foudres in a tiny cellar, Daniel follows them through élevage with great care and bottles them without filtration.
