Domaine de la Grosse Pierre Chiroubles Aux Craz 2021 (6 Bottles) Beaujolais, France

$355.00 GST Included


Aux Craz is one of four wines that Domaine de la Grosse Pierre produce from their seven hectares of old vine Chiroubles. It’s a particularly cool high altitude spot with unforgivingly shallow topsoil that forces the forty year old vines to dig deep into the rocks.

The resulting wine is strikingly perfumed with a cool minerality and fine rocky tannin. It’s so crunchy its almost edgy but the skilful Passot has smoothed out the sharp edges and the finish is detailed and supple. Another wonderfully terroir driven wine from a Beaujolais star in the making.



About Domaine de la Grosse Pierre

Domaine de la Grosse Pierre was established in 1979 but the story really comes to life in 2018 when Pauline Passot took over the Domaine. With new experiences, renewed energy, and fresh perspectives the wines soon reached new heights. It’s a familiar tale, but it is one we never get bored of telling.

Pauline Passot organically farms nine hectares of vines in Chiroubles, Morgon and Fleurie, many dating back to the 1940s, she practices biodynamics, and her winery approach is lo-fi, sensitive, and squeaky clean. These are wines, to quote Jancis Robinson, ‘for those who appreciate subtlety rather than mass’. Vivid, and nimble these are a super addition to our Beaujolais line up and they offer exceptional value in an increasingly premium region.

Fine Wine Cellars

On the one hand, our role as a merchant of all things wine & spirits could not be simpler. We aim to source the most delicious, the most authentic, and the highest quality products possible from Australia and around the world in order to offer them to our clients. We live or die by how well we perform this task. Of course things are rarely as simple or as easy as they seem. Hunting for wines & spirits is no different. Apart from the months spent travelling, countless days and evenings spent tasting and the outrageous wine expenditure in the name of ‘research’, sourcing quality wine and spirits requires expertise and experience. Understanding the potential of a producer and their products is much more than just a slurp and a spit.
