Domaine Chapel, Beaujolais Villages; Beaujolais, France 2020
Michele Smith first met David Chapel in Beaujolais, while on holiday from New York where she worked as the wine director for Brooklyn Fare. David was working for renowned Beaujolais producer Lapierre at the time.
Now they make wine together across a few key spots in Beaujolais, picking vineyards at higher elevations (400-460m) for a fresh style. They work completely organically and work the land by hand. The wines are delicate and precise and despite their easy drinking nature, complex and fascinating.
You can't always get what you want :'(
Some of the stuff on our shelves is just too damn fresh to offer for delivery. If you've seen that we've got something but can't find it on here then you'll have to pay us a visit!
Blackmail? Maybe, but we'd love to see you...
