La Forge Chiroubles 2017


Laurent Guillet has been making wine in Beaujolais since 1987, and took over his father’s estate in Morgon in 2000. He later married Laurence, who came from a family of blacksmiths who also owned one hectare of wild old bush vines in Chiroubles. Together, from this tiny untrellised plot, they developed La Forge. So this really is a wine born of love and a lot of hard graft.

Although meant to be consumed young, this vegan-friendly Gamay has dark depth and real backbone. Notes of blackberries, blueberries and raspberries, are lifted by notes of violets, smoky spices and wildflowers. Enjoy with lighter dishes, tomato or romesco sauces, roasted ham or aubergine, turkey leftovers with cranberry sauce, or the smorgasbord of a picnic.
