Michele Smith and David Chapel met in Beaujolais, whilst Michele was on holiday and David was working at the esteemed Marcel Lapierre.
After some time in New York, where, most recently, Michele was the Wine Director for Brooklyn Fare they moved back to Beaujolais to become vignerons. Their first vintage, 2016 Julienas Côte de Bessay, was vinified at Lapierre whilst they were still searching for their own cellars.
In 2017 with their new family home and cellars in Régnié-Durette they started on the new vintage, introducing a Beaujolais Villages from fruit in nearby Lantignié from organically farmed vineyards.
This crushable and easy-drinking Gamay is fruit-forward and structured, showing undertones of wet stones, spice, and wet earth.
Serve with a slight chill and crush all season long!
We also have a couple of Magnums for the party starters!
