Domaine Metrat Chiroubles La Scandaleuse is a lovely purple colour, tightly knit, very engaging with deep raspberry fruit.

Domaine Metrat Chiroubles La Scandaleuse has some pepper too, extremely good, a lovely wealth of fruit on the palate and an excellent perfumed finish

The Metrat family home and winery are to be found in the midst of the very highly regarded sector of Fleurie called “La Roilette”. which lies towards the bottom of the slope close to the border of Moulin a Vent.

“Chiroubles, La Scandaleuse is the new name for the former Côte Rôtie cuvée, after the Rhone appellation complained. Lovely purple colour, tightly knit, very engaging with deep raspberry fruit. Some pepper too, extremely good, a lovely wealth of fruit on the palate and an excellent perfumed finish”

Metrat is a small domaine that has small parcels of vines spread across several communes in Beaujolais.

It is owned and run by Sylvain Métrat and his father-in-law Michel Chevalier. From vines aged more than 60 years old facing full south on sandy granitic soil. This vineyard is located higher on the slope than the Fleurie holdings of Metrat.

Chiroubles is an appellation for red wines made from the Gamay grape variety in northern Beaujolais.

Covering one of the smallest areas of the ten Beaujolais crus, the viticultural zone of Chiroubles stretches up the southeast-facing slopes of the hills immediately west of Beaujolais. Domaine Metrat

The cooler climate at these higher altitudes gives rise to a lighter, fresher style of red wine, often with floral and red-fruit characters. In fact, Chiroubles is often described as being the most ‘Beaujolais-like’ of the ten individual crus.

Chiroubles, La Scandaleuse is the new name for their former Côte Rôtie cuvée, after the Rhone appellation complained, which the family thought was a scandal.

Lovely purple colour, tightly knit, very engaging with deep raspberry fruit. Some pepper too, extremely good, a lovely wealth of fruit on the palate and an excellent perfumed finish.
