This Cru Chiroubles presents itself in a shiny blueberry color. It has remarkable complexity, finesse and elegance, with floral aromas (primarily peony), cassis and kirsch. With concentrated, unctuous tannins, it has a tongue-coating finish that is reminiscent of light syrup.
The grapes come from 17.3 acres of traditional Gobelet-trellised southwest-facing vineyards with vines more than 50 years old. Harvesting of this wine is conducted manually, in whole bunches, and the grapes are destemmed before pressing. Semi-carbonic maceration and malolactic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks.
This wine pairs best with charcuterie, chicken, lasagna and soft cheeses.
Pairs well with red meats, Coq Au Vin, grilled or oven roasted wild boar and distinctive cheeses. Ideal serving temperature is 54F.
