Description

2020 is the first vintage made by Hugo Foizel and Angela Quiblier, custodians of Thibault Liger-Belair’s “incubator” for aspiring vignerons. Aux Chânes is the finest, most elegant cuvée of this exciting project. Fruit is sourced from 50-year-old vines, planted on cool granite hills above Julienas. This altitude results in a wine of wonderful elegance and freshness. The nose offers an explosion of rose petal, raspberry coulis and saline touches. The palate is delightfully pure, with bright summer fruits and a refreshing, mouthwatering finish. Drink now – 2028.

Mid crimson. Really exciting nose with layers of interest. Dry finish with quite a bit of ripe tannin. Serious wine. Impressive!

Drink 2023 - 2029

Beaujolais Villages

Beaujolais Villages

A clear step up from basic Beaujolais, Villages wines are still light, with the same pear-drop hint to the juicy red fruit, but are richer with more personality; they are well worth paying a little bit extra for. Beaujolais Villages can come from any of 38 named villages, all of which are based in the northern, hilly half of the region on granite soils.

The best vineyards lie around Beaujeu, west of Régnié and Morgon.  As long as the wine comes exclusively from that village, estates can add their village to the Beaujolais name on the label (e.g. Beaujolais-Beaujeu) but since most Beaujolais Villages is sold by merchants, who blend together wines from several villages, this is quite rare.
