Domaine des Marrans Vieillies Vignes Chiroubles 2014


The local weather in Melbourne seems to have taken on a decidedly far north Queensland guise over the last couple of days.  Perfect though for a chilled Beaujolais, a style and region that I particularly enjoy.  This Chiroubles was spotted in a local wine store, a tribute frankly to the depth of the offering available in the local wine scene.  It's a tasty wine, all fresh cherries and earth with hints of complexity.  The palate has just enough grip and is well balanced and a sense of place (you can read notes on my trip to the region last year here).   (Alc: 12.5%, Region: Chiroubles, Beaujolais, France, Rating: Good to Very Good, Drink: now)
