Chamonard "La Madone" Fleurie 2018
Joseph Chamonard is one of the original superstars of Beaujolais. His legacy has been passed to his daughter Geneviève who, with her husband, has continued putting this estate on lists for taste and quality. The duo have pressed the boundaries for natural wine making with their plantings; most of which lie in Morgon. This single parcel Fleurie comes from old vines planted on pink granite soil. Flavors of raspberry, plum, black cherry and the coveted flavor of violets so particular to this Crus. Give it a go with a white bean and ham stew topped with lots of Gruyère!
