Elisa Guerin has deep roots in Beaujolais, as she was born in the cru village of Chénas. Smith-Chapel says that fruit for her Beaujolais-Villages comes from 60-year-old vines planted in igneous rock on the border of Moulin-à-Vent and Chénas. Guerin recently took over her family’s vineyards and is in the process of converting them to organic viticulture. “She’s also paved her own path and pursued a natural vinification,” explains Smith-Chapel, describing Guerin’s first wine as “complex yet approachable, with flavors of crushed pink granite, poppy flowers, and tart pomegranate.” Smith-Chapel recommends serving the wine as an aperitif “with a large plate of saucisson, Comté — and plenty of friends.”
