Fleurie 2017

Beaujolais
  • 75cl bottle

An elegant Fleurie where mineral notes complement ripe fruit and spicy nuances. Inimitable finesse and a persistent finish with well balanced tannin and acidity. Velvety, elegant and floral.

Vineyards

Grapes come from the slopes below the Chapel de la Madonne where soil is granitic with large crystals and areas of sand.

Vintage

A low yielding year in Beaujolais due to summer hails but the surviving fruit was ripe and of excellent quality.

Winemaking

Grapes are harvested by hand and loaded into the fermentation tank in whole bunches. Maceration lasts 10 to 12 days to give extra colour and body.

Enjoy with:

  • Grilled and Roasted Red Meats
  • Grilled and Roasted White Meats
  • Pizza/Pasta
  • Casseroles/Stews
  • Mild Creamy Cheeses
