Named appropriately after small lizards that come out in the sun, this wine conveys a warm, sunny feel. It has acidity but the main thrust of the wine is for ripe berry fruits and a touch of tannins.
In 1917, Auguste Faye, a wine merchant in Mâcon, purchased Château de Javernand in Beaujolais. Today, Pierre Prost and Arthur Fourneau, the fifth generation of the family, are in charge of the estate, which has 10 hectares of vines in the Beaujolais Cru of Chiroubles and 3 hectares in Mâcon. In Chiroubles, the soils are sandy and shallow, composed mainly of decomposed granite. Pierre and Arthur aim to offer authentic wines that are faithful to the soil from whence they came, and consequently farm in an environmentally responsible manner with an emphasis on maintaining, and increasing, biodiversity.
The Chiroubles is made from 100% Gamay, all of which is hand-harvested and fermented with a mix of whole bunches and destemmed fruit in stainless steel vats in order to preserve the fruit quality of the wine. Les Gatilles is a supple and fruit forward wine with pleasing acidity and wonderful freshness. The name Les Gatilles refers to the little gray lizards which warm themselves in the sun in the hills of the vines.
