Chiroubles is often described as being the most "Beaujolais-like" of the 10 cru wines. It is one of the smallest of the 10 Beaujolais crus, with vineyards on high-altitude slopes. There is a strong diurnal temperature shift here, leading to grapes that are well-cooled at night and as a result producing lighter, less-concentrated wine, often with a pronounced floral character.

The Gamay for this bottling is sourced from the Javernand lieu-dit. It is named “Cuvée Léa” in 2019 after Guy's granddaughter. It is perfumed and silky, and such a pleasure to drink that it vanishes quickly. Floral and succulent, bursting with notes of little red berries, but also delicate and light on its feet. It serves as a phenomenal counterpoint to some of the more structured Gamays coming out of the region.
