Chiroubles, La Scandaleuse is the new name for their former Côte Rôtie cuvée, after the Rhone appellation complained, which the family thought was a scandal. Lovely purple colour, tightly knit, very engaging with deep raspberry fruit. Some pepper too, extremely good, a lovely wealth of fruit on the palate and an excellent perfumed finish.
These vines are in the Chiroubles Cru and are situated higher than the Fleurie vineyards of Metrat. They are over 60 years old and their roots penetrate deep into the sandy granitic soil. Vinification is mostly in cement, with 15% aged in small barrels. Gamay is at it's best here!
Past orders have always provided us with wines that please the taste buds and compliment the meal. Looking forward to trying the latest arrivals.
