Description

 Domaine De Vernus Chiroubles 2019

Domaine De Vernus Chiroubles reflects the specificities and identity of its terroir. Red colour with generous blue hues. White flowers, fresh red currants and a hint of burning embers fills the nose. A rich and refreshing Gamay with its melting tannins, lively acidity and smokey finish.

Ageing potential: Drink until 2026.

100% Gamay. The Chiroubles plots produce a wine of great freshness from their 425m height and granite soils. The plots have an average age of 60 years for Verbomet and 50 years for Châtenay. 

Harvesting and hand sorting of the fruit. 100% destemming before alternate grape treading, pumping over and delestage. Cold maceration. Natural fermentation with wild yeasts for 3 weeks before the wine is left to settle for 10 days. The wine matures in oak barrels for 10 months.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

 - 90 POINTS

"The 2019 Chiroubles bursts with aromas of sweet berry fruit, burning embers and loamy soil, framed by a classy patina of spicy oak. Medium to full-bodied, ample and sensual, with melting tannins, lively acids and a smoke-inflected finish, it's an attractive Beaujolais with a Burgundian accent."
