Tasting Notes

Domaine des Fonds Fleurie 2018 is classic Fleurie, a lighter style of Gamay and when I say lighter I mean lighter in body but not in complexity. Fruity characteristics dominate this wine with lots of red fruit flavours & aromas like redcurrants, strawberries & red cherries and hints of rose petals. Savoury meaty notes are starting to develop but a swirl of the glass makes the fruit aromas come forward again. This wine is beautifully made with no added sulphur. In brief this is a lovely soft fruity red wine with a lovely freshness and elegance. Fleurie is one of the 10 Beaujolais crus (cru here meaning a wine producing area rather than a single vineyard) and is noted for its more ‘feminine’ style, lighter body and floral aromas just like Domaine des Fonds Fleurie 2018.

 

Beaujolais wines, made 100% from the Gamay grape, are the quintessential fruity wines but memories of characterless, peardrop-scented Beaujolais Nouveau mean that the name “Beaujolais” often sends a shudder down the spine.  But it is possible to find superb wines in the Beaujolais region especially in the higher classified wines of the crus Beaujolais – and because they are no longer particularly fashionable, the wines are often good value.  The Berrod family at Domaine des Fonds produces wine with minimal intervention and have gained HVE certification, confirming their sustainable approach, and are working most of their 17 hectare estate organically. They use concrete tanks for maceration and stainless steel for ageing which help preserve the fruity characteristic of the wine.

How to enjoy this wine

This is a refreshing red wine recommended to drink with charcuterie, paté, cheese, roast ham, roast lamb, roast chicken and turkey and with spicy Thai and Chinese dishes. The producers recommends this as one of the few red wines that can be enjoyed with fish.

 

Serve at the lower end of the suggested temperature range if you like your light red wines served cooler like the French. Serve at: 11 – 14°C

 

Producer's Notes

Translated: “The emblematic appellation of our estate, we cultivate 9 hectares of Fleurie. Planted on pink granite hillsides, Fleurie is a fruity, structured yet supple wine. There are notes of strawberry, raspberry and blackcurrant.”

“Similarly juicy fruit but with a more savoury edge than the Morgon just tasted, especially on the finish. Leathery notes on the aftertaste – but with excellent clarity of fruit too.”
