Wine Details

Fleurie 2017

Beaujolais
  • 75cl bottle

The wines are rich and generous with lovely juicy fruit balanced with finely grained tannins and fresh acidity. A vibrant wine.

Vineyards

One of the 10 Crus of Beaujolais situated between Villefranche sur Saône and Mâcon. Louis Jadot source from specific parcels to make a blend at their Château des Jacques estate.

Vintage

The 2017 vintage was very dry, but was relatively cool. Luckily, the frost damage was minimal and a combination of moderate day temperatures and cool evenings resulted in relatively good yield and wonderful flavour concentration.

Winemaking

Vinified in the traditional way for this region, semi-carbonic maceration (12-20 days) with pumping over in order to extract good colour, tannins and flavours.

Enjoy with:

  • Grilled and Roasted Red Meats
  • Pizza/Pasta
  • Salads and Picnics
  • Mild Creamy Cheeses
Perfect as aperitif, with tomato base pasta dishes or tender veal. Can be served slightly chilled in the summer.
