Hubert Lapierre Chénas 2013

Beaujolais, France | Gamay | 75cl | 13.5% ABV | Contains Sulphites
Origin: France
RRP: £13.99

A specific type of red granite, only found in the Cru of Chénas is among the secrets adding to incredible quality and phenomenal power. Sometimes, Chénas is overlooked due to its size (being the smallest Beujolais village), but it has a mighty presence and personality in the glass. The wines are mineral and fleshy, needing time to settle in the bottle.

Beaujolais has almost been left behind. The Gamay grape was banned in Burgundy under Philip the Bold, deemed not noble enough for the Côte d'Or. The promise of resurgence gained traction in the early 90s following the first case of Beajolais to make it home following the vintage, via helicopter, hovercraft or car. These wines became known as Beujolais Nouveau - picked, fermented, bottled and drunk by the third thursday in November, known as 'Beaujolais day'. Now, drinkers are begining to realise there is exceptional quality in the region.

This wine won a gold medal in the 2014 French Concours des Vins de Macconais et du Beaujolais. 

Tasting Notes: 

A dark fruit character shows itself, with black cherry and blackcurrent present in the glass. You will also pick up on ntoes of coffee, chocolate, raisins and the forest. 

The Perfect Serve: 

This wine contains perfectly harmless, natural sediment, so we'd recommend a decanter. If you want to eat something with this bottle, we'd reccomend coq au vin, beef bourguignon and pâté.
