100% Gamay, from 71 year old vines grown organically on a steep granite hillside that towers over the surrounding vineyards with a famous chapel at the top (hence the name). Justin’s small parcel comes from vines owned by his mother, who lives at the top of this famous hill. Hand-harvested and vinified via carbonic maceration. Aged in used Burgundy barrels for 7 months prior to bottling, un-fined and unfiltered.
Jumps out of the glass with an effusive nose of cherry, blackberry, spice, rose hip and violets. The voluminous palate displays immense concentration with broad fruit flavors tightly coiled around a firm mineral backbone and lifted elegance. A serious and peerless Beaujolais.
