Fleurie is one of the 10 crus of Beaujolais. A nice village located between Moulin-à-Vent and Chiroubles. The vineyards of Fleurie are located on a granitic soil. They are east/south- east oriented. The local wind there always helps the grapes mature regularly. Fleurie Poncereau is fruity as well as floral. Fleurie is surely the most popular Cru and this wine shows why with its seductive, drinkable style.
It is mellow and elegant but also a racy wine. It has a silky texture and finesse, balanced by supple freshness and acidity on the palate with a long finish. Predominatly 100% Gamay grape. Full of succulent, ripe raspberry and cherry fruit this is supple, silky and fresh. Some time in oak has enhanced the complexity and structure.
Grilled and Roasted Red Meats, Mild Creamy Cheeses, Perfect with pate, and lots of crusty french bread. Try slightly chilled.
