Total crush here in 2017 was just 17 tons, so they are starting small. All winemaking is very low extraction, with carbonic maceration, no pigeage, and no punching down: just keeping the cap wet.��

David Chapel and his wife Michele Smith-Chapel are reimagining Juli�nas.��Long associated with burly, tannic, over-oaked wines they have taken a different approach and inspired by David�s time working at Domaine Lapierre have harnessed the benefit of cool, carbonic macerations and gentle �levage.��Their first vintage in 2016 was vinified chez Lapierre and the hands-off approach is evident in this pure-fruited style of wine, where the natural substance of Juli�nas is captured neatly without dominating the wine�s structure. If ever there was a story to tell behind a Domaine, then David and Michele should be front and centre.��David was born into high-end gastronomy, the son of Alain Chapel the patriarch of the nouvelle cuisine�movement in France and Michelle ran wine programmes for various starred restaurants in her native New York.� The two came together by chance when Michelle was in the region on holiday, before they spent time back in New York then settled in Beaujolais where they�ve recently built their own cellars.�
