Fleurie Château De Fleurie Héritiers, Jean Loron, Beaujolais, France, Half Bottle, 2021
Grape: 100% Gamay, hand harvested. A blend of plots located close to the chateau in the village of Fleurie.
Fleurie is the “Queen” of the Beaujolais Crus producing beautifully rich wines with silky tannins. With its intense garnet red colour, it reveals irises, faded roses, ripe cherries and blackcurrant aromas gradually embellished with spices and liquorice, or a touch of dark chocolate. The mouth is round, fleshy and elegant.

More about Château de Fleurie.
The lovely 18th century castle, situated in the centre of the village of Fleurie, belongs to Chantal Roclore, the grand child of Jean Loron. Under the winery, the vaulted cellar holds an impressive stock of oak vats where the entire production is matured. This 32 acre estate spreads over the best “climat” of the Fleurie appellation: “les Grands Fers”, “La Madone”, “Le Point du Jour”. The soil is made of pure pink coloured granite called “le gore”, a poor soil giving low yields. The vinification of the hand-picked grapes lasts from 12 to 15 days, in vats covered by a “chapeau grillé” (special grating cover).
Serve at 15° C with poultry and white meat, lasagne or a tagine.
