Domaine Fabien Collonge Chiroubles 'L'Aurore des Côtes' 2015 Review

Fabien Collonge’s Chiroubles is an excellent value for Cru Beaujolais. The wine is dark in color, with aromas of violets and bramble fruit. Flavors include fresh, tart raspberries. The texture is rather generous, with fine, soft tannins gently caressing the palate like linen sheets. This wine is a bit riper and darker than other wines from Chiroubles but is still very balanced and pleasant. Try this wine if you like light and fruit-forward wines but appreciate old-world nuance. Proceed with caution; this reasonably-priced wine might cause repeat purchases, and exploration of more expensive Cru Beaujolais.
