Classic Beaujolais winemaking with very low extraction, carbonic maceration, no pigeage, and no punching down.  Just keeping the cap wet.

Michele Smith and David Chapel met in Beaujolais, whilst Michele was on holiday and David was working at Lapierre. After some time in New York, where, most recently, Michele was the Wine Director for Brooklyn Fare they moved back to Beaujolais to become vignerons. Their first vintage, 2016 Julienas Côte de Bessay, was vinified at Lapierre whilst they were still searching for their own cellars. In 2017 with their new family home and cellars in Régnié-Durette they started on the new vintage, introducing a Beaujolais Villages from fruit in nearby Lantignié from organically farmed vineyards.

David and Michele started farming three plots in two different crus of Beaujolais: Chiroubles (Saint-Roch and Poullet) and Fleurie (Charbonnières) in January 2018. Sitting at 400m and 460m respectively the subsequent work they’ve done has been organic and by hand with only a cable plough and garden hoe.
