A luscious, fruit-filled, seductively silky Beaujolais Cru. This is Fleurie from Dominique Piron’s superb 14th generation estate and a vintage described by many publications as “legendary”. Relish the plush, rounded cherry and blackberry fruit.
"Such pretty fruit and, in 2018, such depth too. A truly delicious and charming Fleurie"
Jehan Sacaze Buyer for Beaujolais
Fleurie is the queen of Beaujolais – full of charming, seductive, silky fruit and lifted floral scents. While Beaujolais dropped out of fashion, Fleurie never did. Tasting this pretty, fruit filled 2018, you’ll understand why. It’s from Dominique Piron, whose estate was founded way back, in the 17th century. Today it has 95 hectares of vines throughout Beaujolais’ finest villages, a third of them in Morgon. Dominique is the 14th generation, and, with no family of his own, he has joined up with a long-standing friend, Julien Revillon. Together they have a vision to produce Beaujolais as fine as any Grand Cru Burgundy. They go to great lengths to achieve that, in the vineyard and in the cellar. Pure Gamay, this red is exuberant and smooth.
