EMILY’S PICK: Precise and full of personality. Fragrant faded rose and violet, ripe forest berries, and a clean, silky finish. Gilles Paris is one of five brothers, all of whom are involved in wine in some way or another. Chiroubles is arguably the most challenging terroir of the Beaujolais; nowhere else in Beaujolais do you find Chiroubles’ combination of steepness, storm exposure, and thin, sandy granite soils. Paris captures the struggle in this wine. Cultivated entirely by hand, this wines is made as naturally as possible (no chemicals or mechanization, no sulfur additions, no oak aging), so you can truly taste the “terroir” that is Chiroubles. Enjoy at your leisure.
