About Jean-Claude Chanudet La Cuvée du Chat Gamay

Jean-Claude Chanudet La Cuvée du Chat drinks like Cru Beaujolais. Carbonic maceration, native yeast fermentation and minimal sulfur addition. The beautiful Gamay grapes from these 80-year-old vines are handpicked in October, after which Carbonic maceration with natural yeasts occurs in an enamel tank with some pumping over to stimulate activity. The wine is then moved to foudres to rest on lees before finally being bottled with minimal sulfur addition.

About Jean-Claude Chanudet

Jean-Claude Chanudet is one of the movers and shakers in the natural wine world of Beaujolais. This particular parcel is one bought with Marie LaPierre in 2010, and is composed of 2.5 hectares of granitic soils. He follows a similar philosophy to the greats of Beaujolais: he interferes as little as possible in both the vineyard and the cellar, refraining from the use of harmful, inorganic chemicals and additives. Only indigenous yeasts are used in the cellar, and a long, slow carbonic maceration gives the suppleness and softness for which Chanudet’s cuvées have become known. While not certified organic, Chanudet follows the same practices to a tee, stating that it is not up to the organic winemakers to write “Organic wine” on their labels, but rather to the others to indicate “Chemically-produced wine.” Chanudet’s wines are intense and structured and are built for ageing.
