Description

Chiroubles, is, of course, one of the 10 Beaujolais Crus, and is made from 100% Gamay grapes. This soft, attractive Beaujolais is often described as “feminine” in character and can be served lightly chilled, particularly in the summer months.

This wine made by a co-operative called La Cave des Grands Vins de Fleurie. The co-op was founded in 1927, largely by the women of Fleurie, who has become used to working together, during and after WW1, when many of the men from the region were fighting and many would not return. Today the co-op is one of the largest producers Fleurie AC (as well as Brouilly, Chiroubles, Morgon, Moulin A Vent, Beaujolais and Beaujolais Villages) and has 330 member-winegrowers with over 350 hectares of vineyards.
