Description

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.  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.

 

The Berrod family 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. Fleurie is a lighter style of Gamay but lighter in body not in complexity. Fruity characteristics dominate with lots of red fruit flavours & aromas like redcurrants, strawberries & red cherries and rose petal notes. Savoury notes are starting to develop but a swirl of the glass makes the fruit aromas come forward again. In brief this makes a great summer red wine but its elegance makes it a choice for any time of year.

Food Pairing

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.”
