Raphael Chopin, as humble as he is, shares an artistic talent just like his namesake. It was perhaps meant to be that he became a winemaker since he was born on November 21st, the celebration of Beaujolais Nouveau! Add to this, winemaking was already in his blood, having a winemaker grandfather. After studying in France, Raphael went to work a harvest in Australia for a vintage stint. He then returned to Beaujolais, and with the support of his mother and grandmother, Raphael proudly revived his grandfather’s vineyard with the fantastic 2009 vintage.
Raphael farms the vineyard organically, working towards certification. This means no use of chemicals, instead he uses essential oils, copper and limited levels of sulphur. He is tilling the soil, hand harvesting and sorting, essentially managing his small vineyard like he would a precious garden. The result is simply delicious, with purity of fruit as the trademark.
Why do we like it?
The wine is 100% Gamay as all Beaujolais red in the region should be. It’s an intriguing, deep and brooding Morgon with plenty of spice and kirsch flavours on the palate. It feels plush on the palate with ripe strawberry, cherry fruits, savoury herbs, a slight peppery note, and plenty of fresh acidity to keep the elements in balance. Ageing in cement tank has added an extra layer of complexity on the finish.
