Karim Vionnet Vin de Kav Chiroubles 2014
Being neighbor with Morgon stars Lapierre, Foillard and Breton, it must be inspiring to be around them! Since he also worked with Guy Breton, his experience did help when he started making his own wines back in 2006. No addition of yeast, sugar, sulfur of other “ingredients”. His wine are made in the most natural way possible!
Here is my tasting note on his Chiroubles:
Cherry red color. Typical fruity nose of Gamay wines with explosive red berries, earth and spices with just a hint of funkiness. Pure red fruit expression on the palate with crushed rocks and a finish with black pepper notes. Highly enjoyable and thirst quencher, this is a great Beaujolaiswine! Very good (89)
Made of Gamay. Natural winemaking. Aged 9 months in oak barrels. Alcohol level of 12%
