Wine information

The La Chapelle des Bois site in Fleurie covers 61 hectares, of which the Chastels own 0.86 hectares. The site is located slightly southwest of the village centre on deep weathered granite, whereby the Gamay noir à jus blanc, as it is called in full, is around 35 years old. After handpicking and sorting, whole bunches were used. Undamaged berries were placed at the bottom of the concrete cuve, crushed ones on top, so that the Gamay would have a Macération semi-carbonique could pass through. The wine was then aged for seven to eight months in cement cuves.


quite transparent garnet red


Silky and gentle, the Fleurie first on the nose. Notes of warm forest floor and dark biscuit dough mingle with violets and wild strawberry compote, sweet cherry and cinnamon. Behind this lies a fresh note of barberries and crushed stone.


On the palate the La Chapelle des Bois slightly earthy and firm, fleshy and ripe, juicy and generous with a fine, elegant tannin and a warmth that almost makes you want to drink it. This is a charming, inviting FleurieIt makes no secret of the warmth of the vintage, but frames all this with fresh acidity, so that one wants to drink more and more of this wine.
