Hospitality pedigree to the nth degree. Winemakers David Chapel, son of Alain Chapel (world renowned three-Michelin star chef), and sommelier in his own right, and former Per Se sommelier Michele Smith met in Beaujolais, where Michele was visiting and David was working with the Lapierres for a summer. Where love blossomed they set roots, farming a few parcels in Fleurie, Chiroubles, and Julienas. Charbonnieres 2018 shows vibrancy alongside density of fruit and mineral, brambly without being extracted.
