Chiroubles, Beaujolais

Domaine de la Grosse Pierre (Alain Passot)

Cuvee Claudius Chiroubles Gamay 2018

This type of cru Beaujolais is what I love about this region, and the excellent QPR. On the nose, beautiful aromatics of rose petals and boysenberries, in the mouth cracked black pepper, rose hips, berries. High acid. Long finish. Light and yet mouth filling. Quite excellent. — 9 days ago

Wow! Whimsical floral and cherry notes, nice balanced acidity and a beautiful finish. Great Beaujolais to drink young on a hot summer day — 25 days ago

Cote De Brouilly Gamay 2016

Nose of red berries, cherries in particular with some spices. The palate is fresh, pure and has good fruit with a nice backbone, good balance, medium length but a wine that is more Burgundy like than Bojo like, which is not without pleasing me.

Nez de cerises rouges et d’épices. Une bouche avec une bonne acidité et du beau fruit pur, frais et avec un bel équilibre d’ensemble, longueur moyenne. Un style plus Bourguignon ce qui n’est pas sans me plaire.

Enjoyable Beaujolais. I’m new to Beaujolais, and this was unobtrusive. It worked ok with Indian food and pasta arrabiata. — 22 days ago

8 months later ... Light, cloudy ruby ​​color (unfiltered) ... the nose is a floral explosion on a beautiful bouquet: Lilies, peony, rose. The mouth is slightly sparkling at the opening, proof that the wine lives: no sulfur added (or very little, at the time of bottling certainly). With exuberant floral notes, the mouth adds the roundness of an explosive fruity, typical of strawberry, jammy raspberry. The texture is supple, silky, and digestible. Magnificent "natural" wine, entry-level cuvée, by one of the great craftsmen of Beaujolais. Delicious as an aperitif, light or Italian cuisine, or over fish.

8 mois après... Robe rubi légère, trouble (non filtré)... le nez est une explosion florale sur un beau bouquet de Lys, pivoine, rose. La bouche est légèrement perlante à l’ouverture, preuve que le vin vit: pas de souffre ajouté (ou très peu, au moment de la mise en bouteille certainement). Aux notes florales exubérantes, la bouche ajoute la rondeur d’un fruité explosif, typé fraise, framboise confiturés. La texture est souple, soyeuse, et digeste. Magnifique vin « nature » cuvée d’entrée de gamme, par l’un des grands artisans du Beaujolais. Délicieux à l’apéritif, cuisine légère, italienne, ou sur un poisson.

Wild strawberries, little furry leaves and all. Rocky. Lightest of tannin does a lot for body. Acid just where it needs to be. — 2 days ago

Somehow whenever I know that I am drinking a wine to young I see @David T scolding me! I do highly respect his insights and the plan was to wait three more years!
But the realization that I was going to need to sacrifice a bottle; that I can Hopefully replace came late this afternoon.
Most likely we are going to be saying goodbye to our hyperthyroidism kitty " Patience" tomorrow. It has been a long battle and she would have turned 15 July 31st. So some self medicating is warranted! 😓.
Although this wine is delicious even young! Ripe Bing Cherries...licorice...bubble gum..tea leaves and moist forest floor! Delicious wine! I will try to obtain another bottle and let it age longer!

@Dawn E. Saddened hearing about the loss of your dear Patience. Pets are the unconditional friends who bring us much joy. Take care and let the tears flow. ❤
