This 40 year-old vines that go into this wine are definitely 'old vines', yet they're the youngest Bouland has. The sandy, rocky soils and high elevation make this his lightest wine, with an airy structure and high-toned berry fruit. Chiroubles is a steep, high-altitude cru, so Daniel must do all of his pruning and harvesting entirely by hand.

Cru Beaujolais is no longer a secret among wine lovers. For about a decade now names like Lapierre, Foillard and Metras have been among the most sought after by collectors and everyday wine drinkers alike. We have long believed that the wines of Daniel Bouland were deserving of the same attention and devotion, and in the last couple of years that has become a reality.

Bouland's wines come from very old vines and seem to operate on three well-delineated layers: An airy top register of flowers and flint-smoke, the middle layer flush with refined (and sometimes powerful) red fruits, and precise, vividly mineral structures at the low register. It's this near- visualizable depth and detail that sets them apart. Bouland would probably make a great photographer.

The wines can age. Ten years is not asking too much. But most also drink wonderfully on release - especially the Chiroubles, Melanie, and Corcelette. They have brains and brawn. And, most importantly, beauty.

"Red wine. Chiroubles, Beaujolais, France. Sustainable. 100% Gamay. "Aromas of plums, pomegranate and spices introduce Bouland's 2020 Chiroubles Chatenay, a medium to full-bodied, bright and lively wine with velvety tannins and an ample core of fruit. This steeply sloping, higher altitude site has performed especially well in this warm vintage."" -Robert Parker
