So here we are, ready to release our nouveau-né, Chiroubles 2018, into the wild. Even before the pressing, the free run juice had aromatics similar to Syrah, although it is distinctly Beaujolais by blood. Dusty granite, salty herbs, cranberry punch, & wild blueberries. We moved to Beaujolais with the intention of farming vines in Chiroubles. In January of 2018 we took over two parcels, in the lieux-dits: Saint-Roch & Poullet. Chiroubles, with its steep slopes, & high altitude parcels, has more in common with the Northern Rhône than any other region in France. Because of the steepness of the vines we work manually, with a cable plow, like what you see often on the slopes of the Northern Rhône. It’s the only way to work around the crowded old gobelet gamay vines. #beaujolais #chiroubles #gamay

A reminder to myself that when you farm slopes, you don’t work the vines, they work you. Yesterday, I was defeated by the vines here in Chiroubles. If it was a battle, I definitely lost and got my ass handed to me. Today, it was better. Chiroubles, lieu-dit <> #chiroubles #domainechapel #gamay #beaujolais

Introducing Smith-Chapel Bourgogne Aligoté, our newest wine born in 2018. It’s like drinking salty lemonade with a lick of limestone. Unfined, unfiltered, organic, aligoté-doré from Fixin. Label drawn by @sylviedv was inspired by the old street signs seen around the neighborhood. #Smith-Chapel #Bourgogne #Aligoté

Acknowledging the work of those in the past, the present and all of the work that still needs to be done to express the greatness of the Beaujolais, the region where we farm vines and call home. There is still a lot of work to be done and by work I mean respecting the vines and the grapes that come from it. An acknowledgment to all of the vigneronnes who are in their vines doing the work and also to those who buy the grapes that would otherwise go to the big négoces, and turn them into something beautiful, a reflection of the terroir they came from. It’s not a fight against vigneronnes vs. négoce, it’s a battle for the respect of the land in Beaujolais. Step by step, it’s moving in the right direction but like everything, it takes time. It’s the work of Jules Chauvet and Marcel Lapierre who paved the way in the region. #Marcellapierre realized he couldn’t do it alone and recruited a few friends to join in the movement and we are just following in their footsteps. #georgesdescombes #jeanfoillard #guybreton #yvonmétras #jeanpaulthevenet #jeanclaudechanudet The name of the article is, ‘Who is going to save the Beaujolais?” We’re new to the Beaujolais, we don’t have the ability to “save” the region. But we join with the others who were here doing it before us and with the others who will come after. #beaujolais Ophélie Neiman for Le Monde @lemondefr

I want to take time to acknowledge this moment because I know they come and go. I own nearly every Jancis Robinson book that she's authored and have been reading and referencing them since the beginning of my career in wine back in NYC. The impact that she has had on me as a sommelier and as a woman in wine is immeasurable. In person, she also still makes me nervous, we'll call it the butterflies 🦋🦋. Thank you, @jancisrobinson for the kind words and we are looking forward to the day we'll drink a bottle together. #beaujolais #domainechapel

Cuvée spéciale - Red Wax 2017 Juliénas, 'Côte de Bessay,' Cuvée Vieilles Vignes, Sans Soufre In 2017 we set aside a small amount of grapes from the 65-year old vines in Juliénas from the parcel Côte de Bessay. As the wine developed it had some characteristics that were different from the other vats. The aromatics and flavors were intense and characteristic of things that grow in nature in Beaujolais: blackberries that grow wild in the vines, fraises des bois with tastes of violet, griottes-sour cherries from our backyard, a dusty minerality that whips up from the granite when the mistral hits from the south and mushrooms that grow high in the mountains around Avenas. The grapes had thicker skins and the majority of the fermentation happened in berry which continued on after the pressing. The fruit lingers but the acidity leaves the wine feeling electric. We didn't add any sulfur to this wine at any point which lets the fruit jump. (we normally add less than 2 grams per hecto at bottling) There were a little less than 600 bottles made. #Domainechapel #beaujolais #gamay #julienas #nosulfur #oldvines #gobelet #sanssoufre #vieillesvignes #redwax #lifewithoutabra
