Nicolas Chemarin P'tit Grobis Beaujolais Villages 2018 (750ml)

Nicolas Chemarin farms 5 hectares of land in the village of Marchampt and a few small plots in Regnié and Morgon. Marchampt is a tiny village secluded in the forested hills of western Beaujolais, just past Quincie en Beaujolais, on the edge of the Massif Central. Nicolas is the fourth generation to farm the family property and the only male of his generation to stay in the village, a fact that has earned him the nickname “Petit Grobis” a term of endearment having to do with small hollows in trees used by owls. It was Nicolas’ father, Lucien, who first moved the family farm away from polyculture in order to concentrate his activities on his vineyards.

To make the Beaujolais-Villages, Nicolas blends two cuves, each employing a different method of vinification. The first cuve uses the standard semi-carbonic fermentation with whole clusters and a 6 to 8 day maceration. The second cuve uses the “classic” red wine fermentation with grapes that have been de-stemmed and crushed before fermentation - the grapes are macerated for 15 days after which the wine is matured for 6 months on its fine lees. For both cuves indigenous yeasts are used, there is no heating of the vats. No sulfur is used during the entire process until just before bottling when a minimal dose is introduced.
