Domaine des Fonds Fleurie 2021 is classic Fleurie, a light fruity red wine. This is a lighter style of Gamay than some Beaujolais wines 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. It makes a great summer red wine but its elegance makes it a good choice for any time of year. 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 2021.


Beaujolais wines, made 100% from the Gamay grape, are the quintessential fruity wine. Memories of characterless, peardrop-scented Beaujolais Nouveau mean that the name “Beaujolais” can often send 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. Fleurie is one of the 10 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. And, because the crus Beaujolais are no longer particularly fashionable, they are often relatively good value.


The Berrod family produces Domaine des Fonds Fleurie 2021 and all its wines with minimal intervention. They 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 is a refreshing red 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: 11 – 14°C. Serve at the lower end of the suggested temperature range if you like your light red wines served cooler like the French.

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.”

“From south-facing sites and largely destemmed this year, the 2021 Fleurie offers up attractive aromas of plums, licorice and petals, followed by a medium-bodied, lively and fleshy palate. Open and melting, it will offer charming drinking on release.

… There’s no smoke or mirrors at this address, just good farming and characterful wines that reflect their appellations.”
