Set against a chain of hills, with south-eastern and north-western exposure, the vineyards of Fleurie are cultivated at an altitude of between 220 and 430m. The soil is composed of very poor granitic sand around the Chapel of the Black Virgin. Toward the east, the soil becomes deeper and shows traces of clay.
Intense carmine red. Floral and fruity aromas of iris, violet, rose, red fruits, and red-fleshed peaches (pêche de vigne). Finesse and balance. Fleshy and silky. Pureness, extreme elegance.
Enjoy with white meats, poultry, leg of lamb and andouillette à la beaujolaise.
