Cru Fleurie is one of the ten exceptional Gamay growing appellations of the Beaujolais. Certified organic grapes for this wine are grown in the classic pink granite soils on one of the finest terroirs of Fleurie, “La Madone”, or the hill of the Madonna. The steep vineyards are terraced, and instead of using a tractor they are worked 100% by hand. With incredible balance, this fantastic complex wine expresses the region with powerful red fruits and a smooth, supple texture. Excellent with grilled chicken or smoked salmon. 13% abv.
Appearance: Intense ruby. Clear and bright
Nose: Full and pronounced bouquet of ripe red fruits including cherry and cranberry. Supported by a hint of toasty bread and a touch of chocolate.
